1 On the CUSP: Stop CAUTI National Content Webinar
Welcome to the National Content Webinar! Today’s Topic: Finding Value in the Staff Safety Assessment Access slides, audio recording and transcript of today’s webinar on the national project website:

2 Kristin Opett, RN, BS, MSHA
Today’s Presenters Lisa H. Lubomski, PhD Assistant Professor Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality Kristin Opett, RN, BS, MSHA Vice President of Patient Safety Rochester Regional Health System Ann Freer, RN, BSN Patient Safety Specialist

3 Learning Objectives After attending the webinar, participants will be able to: Administer the Staff Safety Assessment to all of those who work in their clinical area Analyze the results of the Staff Safety Assessment Identify opportunities for improvement

4 Adaptive Components of CAUTI
CUSP for CAUTI Educate Staff on the Science of Safety Identify defects Partner with senior executive Learn from defects Improve teamwork and communication Adaptive Components of CAUTI

5 Has your team completed the Staff Safety Assessment in the past 6 months?
Yes No Not Sure

6 CUSP Toolkit

7 How do errors happen? People are fallible
Medicine is still treated as an art, not a science Systems do not catch mistakes before they reach the patient

8 What is a defect? Anything that happens, clinically or operationally, that you do not want to happen again.

9 Examples of defects that affect patient safety
Intervention Unstable oxygen tanks on beds Oxygen tank holders repaired or new holders installed (institution-wide) Medication look-alike Education conducted, medications physically separated, and letter sent to the manufacturer Missing equipment on cart Checklist developed for stocking cart Inconsistent use of Daily Goals Rounding Tool Consensus reached on required elements of Daily Goals Rounding Tool Inaccurate information by residents during rounds Electronic progress note developed

10 How can your team identify defects?
Event reporting systems, liability claims, sentinel events, M&M conference Staff Safety Assessment – completed by all staff members (not just medical) in the clinical area

11 The Wisdom of Frontline Providers
Understand the patient safety risks in their clinical areas Have insight into potential solutions to these problems Tap into this knowledge to guide safety improvement efforts

12 What is the Staff Safety Assessment?
AKA – The 2 Question Survey Please describe how you think the next patient in your unit/clinical area will be harmed Please describe what you think can be done to prevent or minimize this harm

13 Administration SUSP project lead or designee
Recommendation: Administer SSA following training on the Science of Safety – providers will have lenses to see system problems To encourage staff to report safety concerns, establish a collection box or envelope in an accessible location where completed forms can be dropped off Complete the SSA at least every 6 months

14 What do teams do with results?
Prioritize identified defects using the following criteria: Likelihood of the defect harming the patient Severity of harm the defect causes How commonly the defect occurs Likelihood that the defect can be prevented in daily work

15 Results from surgical teams
Percentage of Responses (%) Wick EC, et. al., J Am Coll Surg. 2012;215(2):

16 Follow-up is key It is crucial that physician and nurse leaders respond to staff patient concerns The SUSP team and other leaders must be ready to follow-up on the defects identified on the SSA You can use SSA data to develop your local CAUTI care improvement processes

17 Venues for SSA Present the SOS video and administer SSA during these ideal times: Medical staff Grand Rounds New staff orientation Regularly scheduled staff meetings (for nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists, etc.) Lunch and learn sessions Special educator sessions Make video available in break room Hang up SOS factsheet in break room, restroom, etc. Annual recertification requirements Hospital Intranet

18 Staff Safety Assessment
Tool Utilization for CUSP Advancement

23 Objectives Inspire an alternative approach to patient safety using the Staff Safety Assessment tool to capture multidisciplinary viewpoints

24 Where are you? What stage of CUSP are you in? Pre-CUSP
Implementing CUSP Sustaining CUSP

25 Presentation Summarize the Staff Safety Assessment tool and how it drives engagement of frontline teams Purpose Structure Explore tool enhancement of adding 3rd “culture” question Examine a CUSP unit’s successes Medical ICU (MICU)

26 Staff Safety Assessment
Purpose Begin conversation about harm Guide the CUSP team Recognize potential gaps or defects Identify suggestions for change Build Team Member Engagement Allow opportunity for all members to have a voice Creates sense of “buy-in”

27 Staff Safety Assessment
Structure Pre-CUSP work Assess Culture, Identify Core Team, Attend Workshop, Senior Exec. Orientation, Create meeting schedule Implementation Science of Safety / CUSP training Staff Safety Assessment Ongoing / Sustainment Routinely use to re-assess Identify new gaps → project focuses Keep conversation of harm at the forefront

28 Tool Enhancement Additional of 3rd Question
Following 2013 SAQ debriefs Captures underlying cultural barriers Envision the Ideal Unit. What does it look like? What would it take to get there?
