Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority Marks Milestone With One Million Reports
Date:8/12/2009

ghting data that showed an actual or near miss wrong site surgery occurred every other day in Pennsylvania healthcare facilities. Since then, the Authority has seen marked improvement in the reduction of wrong site surgeries in Pennsylvania. Details of the Authority's wrong site surgery educational efforts and new data results are forthcoming.

This year, over 700 nursing homes began reporting healthcare associated infections through PA-PSRS. The Authority worked with its Healthcare Associated Infection Advisory Panel and the Department of Health to develop the reporting requirements. Over 5,000 HAI reports have been submitted by nursing homes since reporting began in June 2009.

"With the enactment of legislation aimed to reduce healthcare associated infections, Pennsylvania has the distinction of having the most comprehensive healthcare associated infection data reporting in the nation," Doering said. "The enthusiasm shown by nursing homes has been encouraging as the Authority has begun to educate nursing homes on what they can do to prevent infections through Advisory articles. As the data is collected, more information will become available and hopefully the enthusiasm will continue for learning from events and implementing change to prevent healthcare associated infections."

Doering said the Authority has increased its educational efforts by developing a program in which six representatives of the Authority or Patient Safety Liaisons are placed throughout the state in six regions. Led by the Director of Educational Programs, the liaison program was developed by request from a focus group of Pennsylvania patient safety officers who asked for more of a presence from the Authority. Three liaisons are located in the northeast, south central and northwest regions of the state. The Authority plans to hire three more liaisons within the next year.

"The PSL program has been very successful so far
