There is a secure password policy in place for your practice.
Passwords are a combination of lowercase letters, uppercase letters, numbers, and symbols.
Passwords are complex, at least eight characters. For greater security, set the minimum password length to 15 characters.
Each staff member has a unique username and password, and they are not shared with others.
Passwords are not written down or easily accessed.
Don’t stop at the first diagnosis. Ask what else might happen or may be going on.
Prevent planning pitfalls. Avoid making the wrong—or inadequate—plan or not planning for the possibility of failure.
Don’t rely on memory. In this case, the orthopedic surgeon should have reviewed how to manage a complicated fracture.
Have nurses and physicians use a structured communication process, such as SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation) to communicate critical or worrisome findings.
Anticipate that failure can occur. When you consider that something might go wrong, you can then be prepared to rescue success from failure.
