Occupational Health and Safety – Surgical Smoke Evacuation Initiative
This assignment builds on the Risk Management Program Analysis Part One assignment you completed in Topic 1 of this course.
Assume that the example risk management program you analyzed in Topic 1 was developed by and is now currently implemented by your health care employer/organization. Further assume that your supervisor has asked you to present a high-level summary brief of this new risk management program to a group of administrative personnel from a newly created community health organization in your state who has enlisted your organization’s assistance in developing their own risk management policies and procedures.
Compose a 1,250-1,500 word summary brief that expands upon the elements you addressed in the Risk Management Program Analysis Part One assignment. In addition, analyze the following:
Explain the Joint Commission’s role in the evaluation of an organization’s quality management processes.
Describe the roles that different levels of administrative personnel play in establishing or sustaining operational policies that are focused on employer-employee organizational risk management policies.
Explain the relationship of risk management programs and compliance with ethical standards.
