3Importance of reporting all events? ProMedica is working hard to become a High Reliability Organization (HRO) which will increase the safety for all patients and employees.In order to become a HRO, ProMedica needs to have accurate and consistent data about ALL events (Near or Actual) that happen. These events will be analyzed for process and system issues so we can improve.This means it is CRUCIAL that everyone identify and report ALL EVENTS.

8What is the difference between "Logout" and "Exiting" from rl6? “Exiting” is the abrupt termination of the application. NEVER exit the system by clicking on the X in the upper right corner of the browser's window.This can cause the report you just worked on to go into a 'file lock'. A report in 'file lock' is not accessible until a System Administrator unlocks it.REMEMBER ALWAYS LOG-OUT when leaving the RL6 Software.
9For Employee events (including Students/faculty): “EMPLOYEE EVENT” is a special icon regardless of the cause of event (fall, needle stick, etc)For reporting an employee event, with or without actual injury, be sure to select the “employee event” icon.DO NOT USE fall, infection, etc. for EMPLOYEE events. You will be unable to complete the report since “Employee” is NOT a choice for “Type of Person Affected/Involved” when using the other icons.
