Managing a Quality Program for the Utility Management Plan, What does it mean?

  • Quality: according to Webster’s “That which makes or helps to make anything such as it is; a distinguished property, characteristic, or attribute”.
  • Don’t you want to feel distinguished?
  • Management: according to Webster’s “To have under control and direction, to conduct, carry on, guide, administer, get under due control; to move or use in a manner desired”
  • Don’t you want to have control and set direction?
  • Utility:according to Webster’s “The state or quality of being useful; usefulness”.
  • Don’t you want to feel useful?
slide5

Predictability factors for credible capital budgeting and forecasts.

Learn from the past.

♦ What happened to your budget last year ?

♦ Last year, did you have to gain emergency funding, beg barrow and steal to make your year ?

♦ Were there any unexpected expenditures that sprung up last year ?

♦ Did you just submit numbers, or did you have independent professional support backup?

♦ How well did you know your CFO ?

slide6

Do your homework.

♦ Present historical data

♦ Do a Facility Condition Assessment

♦ Do a Risk Assessment

♦ Does your leadership think that because you live there, you’re not an expert ?, then:

♦ Obtain outside independent professional support

♦ Obtain benchmarks

  • Predictability factors for credible capital budgeting and forecasts.
slide7

Predictability factors for credible capital budgeting and forecasts.

If you put too much food on your plate, you may get less to eat next time.

♦ Develop a five year capital budget plan, share it with leadership, get buy-in prior to submitting your annual budget

♦ Prioritize your five year plan and only submit that portion for which you got buy-in

  • Paint a what if we don’t do it scenario; spell it out in writing.
  • Don’t put on your plate what you can’t finish eating.

     B- Bring battery operated equipment from home

       C- Inform your immediate supervisor and conserve water

48. If electrical power has been lost, you may:

       A-Use ice machines and obtain drinking water from the faucet

B- Use red outlets powered by emergency generators

       C-Open windows to promote ventilation use

49. When the hospital experiences a telephone system outage, you will report this information to PBX (communication dept) and

  A- Departments will pick up a hand held radio in Security

B- Employees will use their cell phones

  • Rewards for success:
inspecting testing maintaining and examining components of utility management
Inspecting, Testing, Maintaining and Examining components ofUtility Management
  • Definitions:
  • Inspecting: By licensed or certified person
  • Testing: Operational function
  • Maintaining: Performing routine maintenance / repair as established by organization or required by codes & Standards
  • Examining: Observing and recording conditions
inspecting testing maintaining and examining components of utility management24
Inspecting, Testing, Maintaining and Examining components ofUtility Management
  • When and how to do it ?
  • Assign specific duties and responsibilities
  • Provide Frequency chart streamed-lined to the task/s
  • Predetermine schedule for the entire year
  • Set alarms in your schedule if individual is more than 48 hours late in completing the task
  • If multiple individuals are involved in a task, appoint one as the task leader to be held accountable
  • If a test can not be completed (broken amp meter on generator), don’t accept “meter broken” entry in test log
  • Don’t Rely solely on building automation systems
  • Develop check lists
how to maintain a complete set of documents for jcaho and be continuously ready
How to maintain a complete set of documents for JCAHO and be Continuously Ready
  • Contrary to what we learned as kids, do judge a book by it’s cover
  • Keep a book for each of the minimum of the tasks, preferably white 3 ring binders with content description on front and side
  • Implement an automated EOC management program that collects and aggregates data electronically
  • Enter data for Periodic Performance Review (PPR:2004 EOC requirement for 18 month self assessment) on a regular basis
  • Aggregate data quarterly (at a minimum) and review if you are on target
slide26
Implementing, Monitoring, Collecting data and establishing Performance Measures / Indicators and Performance Improvement recommendations
  • Definitions:
  • Performance Measures: An instrument (graph, chart, raw data) by which to measure the success or failure of an EOC task: Typically compares this year to last years performance
  • Performance Indicator: Provides data to where an EOC task is at present in terms of achievement
  • Performance Improvement Recommendation (mostly known as a “PI”): Establishes a goal for improvement in the coming year based on an evaluation of providing the most value to an organization (needs to be approved by the leadership of the organization)
slide27
Implementing, Monitoring, Collecting data and establishing Performance Measures / Indicators and Performance Improvement recommendations
  • Establish with leadership who is responsible
  • Automate the system
  • Review and Report Measures Quarterly
  • Establish performance Indicators (no specific requirement from JCAHO as to the number of measures)
  • Establish a minimum of two performance measures for each of the seven EOC management plans
  • Establish your performance improvement recommendation (only one required for the EOC annually) among EOC management team members who will carry the torch
