2007 John M. Eisenberg Patient Safety and Quality Award Recipients Announced
Date:9/18/2007

the CRM curriculum was modified for clinical application, 220 staff received training to incorporate the CRM principles and concepts into their daily work processes. The result was a dramatic reduction in major adverse obstetric events, which reduced malpractice liability exposure and improved overall patient safety and the quality of obstetric care. Specifically, a 25.4 percent reduction in the Adverse Outcomes Index (a measure developed for the project) was realized, and the severity of adverse events was reduced by 13.4 percent. The success of this work has been broadly recognized and has driven or influenced similar initiatives, including those of the Harvard Risk Management Foundation, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the State of Maryland, and the District of Columbia, among others.

The approach utilized was judged to be easily and cost effectively reproducible in any organization, and, as such, has the potential to have a significant impact on the nationally increasing mortality rates and rising costs associated with MRSA infections.

This year's awards will be presented on September 27, 2007 at NQF's Annual Policy Conference on Quality in Washington, D.C. The December 2007 issue of The Joint Commission Journal on Quality and Patient Safety will feature the achievements of each of the award recipients.
