The primary purpose of Failure Mode and Effects (FMEA) is to deliver reliability of medical intervention for a standardized process, such as installing pacemaker, performing heart surgery, patient intubation, replacing failed heart with a mechanical implant, discharging patients, admitting patients, monitoring patient condition and administering medication.
Understanding the Joint Commission Requirements on FMEA is a webinar that covers topics such as:
The Joint Commission requirements
Potential failure modes (what can go wrong)
Describing the process functions
Effects of failure (on the patients and employees)
Causes of failure (root causes)
A healthcare example of FMEA
Revised risk assessment
Understanding the Joint Commission Requirements on FMEA brings together hospital staff, including Physicians, Chief medical officers, Department clinicians such as radiology, surgery, emergency medicine, Nurses, Patient safety staff, Quality assurance staff and Pharmacy staff.
