Topic: Formal Investigative Report and Root Cause Analysis – Death of Antonio Galeano (2012)
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND FOLLOW.
Clinical Governance is the term used to describe a systematic approach to maintaining and improving the quality of patient care within a health system. It is about the ability to produce effective change so that high quality care is achieved. It requires clinicians and administrators to take joint responsibility for making sure this occurs.
All critical incidents result from a series of underlying/predisposing factors resulting usually from human error, and deficiencies in systems and processes or procedures. When a series of factors line up in a certain way, an adverse event results. If the sequence of events is correctly analysed, the investigator can identify its origin and key points in the sequence, this allows the investigator to design mitigation strategies that can effectively stop that same sequence from recurring.
The task in this assignment is to: Write a ‘Formal Investigative Report’ about the death of Antonio Carmelo Galeano as reported by the Queensland Coroner.
Please use the details below as a guide of what you need to include in this report, the marking criteria will also help guide you.
Introduction/Background to the Incident:
A short introduction including what the report is about followed by a brief background to the critical incident.
Critically examine the case to identify and explore all the predisposing factors that lead to the outcome, these factors are the ‘root causes’.
This information needs to be supported by a flow chart with annotations to present the complex details of the incident in an easy to view format. Analysis: Analysis of the information presented in the ‘data’ section can be referred to as a ‘root cause analysis’ (RCA). The predisposing factors of this specific death are explored in regards to why they existed and how they lead to the incident. Any relationships between the factors is also explained.
Use a ‘patient safety model’ diagram to demonstrate the factors that were the root causes that lead to the incident and to identify factors that if mitigated would have prevented the incident from occurring. NB: Root causes always form one or more chains of events.
If a RCA is conducted correctly it will lead you back to the origin of this chain of events. If you can eliminate one or more of the root causes or break the chain of events you can prevent the same type of adverse event from recurring. A patient safety model is a conceptual construct that guides the investigator in the process of analysis.
In this section of the report current evidence-based peer reviewed literature is explored in relation to the incident and the root causes of the incident to develop a deeper understanding of the why the incident occurred, what should have happened and how it could be prevented in the future.
The National Practice Standards for the Mental Health Workforce 2013 should be discussed in relation to professional best practice with two (2) relevant practice standards being explored further.
The literature discussed needs to be of a high quality and be current.
Evidence-based recommendations are made, which if implemented correctly would prevent the same (death) incident from occurring again. Literature which supports the recommendations needs to be presented, otherwise the report will have little credibility. Any recommendations must address the identified pre-disposing factors, in particular the ‘root causes’ and explain how the recommendations will mitigate these factors using a clear and logical approach. Rationale A health professional is expected to be able to reflect on and analyse their clinical practice and to be aware of the systems in which they function. It is important to be aware of and involved in quality improvement processes. This assessment task will allow the student to explore these quality assurance processes and to gain an understanding of the importance of their role as a health professional in regards to patient safety
