Impact of patient family member on quality committee

Impact of Patient/Family Member on Quality Committee

April 2014: informed Quality Committee of the two patient/family representatives joining as of May 2014.

May 2014: completed orientation and conducted first meeting with patient/family representatives. Established expectations and role of committee members at May Quality Committee.

Modified packet to ensure reports are side to side for easier comparison.

Good discussion of non-punitive response to errors from 2014 Culture of Patient Safety survey.

Patient/family members have helped committee to focus on the important things and spend some time discussing issues and potential resolution.

Quality Committee chair is a retired CNO from a large organization. She encourages equal voice from all members and facilitates meaningful discussion.
