Starting in June, CHPSO members will be able to participate in an
evaluation of retained foreign body (RFB) incidents. The purpose
of this initiative is to assist hospitals in their root cause
analysis process and help CHPSO identify common underlying causes
of RFBs, particularly broken devices and fragments.
A conference call is scheduled on Thursday, May 20 2–3 pm to
review pilot project results on data collection for RFBs and to
ask for comments on the RFB incident data collection tool. Your
comments on the data collection tool will be used to finalize the
tool that will be launched on the June CHPSO Member Call.
If you would like to participate on the May call and provide
feedback to finalize the data collection tool that you could use
at your facility, please call in on May 20th.
