Care teams are often challenged with overseeing fragile and
elderly patients. Such challenges include a balance between the
risk of patient self-harm and staff injury, and the risks
associated with antipsychotic medication administration. The
level of risk associated with the use of these powerful
medications must not be underestimated. Thus, it is incumbent
upon the entire healthcare team to assess the risks of
administration at each decision point across the care continuum.
Quality, patient safety, and risk management positions at your
organization may be listed on the CHPSO Job Board. The job board
is a great way to list your organizations’ opportunities to the
3,000+ subscribers of the CHPSO newsletter. Members of CHPSO, the
California Hospital Association or key partners of the Hospital
Quality Institute may list as many opportunities on this page.
The listings are available at http://www.chpso.org/career-opportunities.
