For example, the system uses a harm scale to code errors as serious events or incidents, explains Jane Trombetta, senior risk manager and patient safety officer for UPMC Passavant, a 270-bed community hospital associated with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.But categorizing an error is not so black and white, she says.

Certain errors, such as instrument problems#8212for example, a machine that wasn't calibrated correctly and produces erroneous results#8212would be deemed an infrastructure failure, Trombetta says.It would be up to the patient safety officer, not the pathologist, to categorize that error, but the pathologist would have to be aware that the error has to be reported, she explains.In the past, such an equipment failure would most likely not have been reported, she adds.

Jane Trombetta Executive Director Quality and Risk Management
Quality and Risk Management at UPMC Passavant monitors certain patient groups during their stay, including acute myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, pneumonia, and immunization cases, to make sure best practices are employed. Providing the right care for the patients while they are in the hospital can help reduce the number of readmissions-a major goal of this department. "We also participate in the development of a discharge plan for each patient. Our objective is an effective transition from the hospital to the patient's home, which can help reduce readmissions," explains Ms. Trombetta.

It's also an opportunity for our staff to remember the patients that they cared for," says Ms. Trombetta.
In order to gather community input, UPMC Passavant encourages local residents to participate on various hospital committees, such as the Patient Risk and Safety Committee and the Infection Control Committee. "Former patients make great community representatives," says Ms. Trombetta.
