Hazard Analysis Implementation and Evaluation
- Recognize high-risk tasks that require a proactive intervention to reduce injuries, such as patient handling, procedures involving sharps, and medication administration involving hazardous drugs (Powell-Cope et al., 2014; OSHA, 2019).
- Provide structured and routine monitoring to identify early indications of hazards such as environment of care rounding or prevention of hazards in advance of implementation to mitigate and eliminate injuries to staff and patients.
- Provide a variety of solutions (e.g., staff education, access to appropriate technology) to mitigate hazards early as part of leadership decision-making across all appropriate stakeholders.
