Each year, CHPSO Patient Safety Organization provides members
with an annual update of the safety event reports submitted to
the CHPSO database. Under a federal law, CHPSO provides a
protection to hospitals by collecting safety event data. In turn,
CHPSO analyzes these data from member organizations and provides
specific feedback to hospitals and shares general, de-identified
information to the health care community. To be included in this
year’s hospital-specific analysis, events should be submitted by
January 31, 2018.
The report includes a dashboard highlighting the number of events
by category we received from your hospital as well as the
aggregate number of reports we received in 2017. There is also a
harm reporting scale, your facility’s participation activity with
CHPSO, and the top named drug classes among your events and in
the overall database. An analysis of events we receive from your
facility will contain information on the content, tone, process,
and recommendations for the submitted events from your hospital.
If you have questions or wish to discuss this information in more
detail, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
