One of the biggest keys to success in injury prevention is good planning, and in order to outline a good plan BSI starts by understanding the strengths and weaknesses in each of your hospital staff injury prevention programs. There are a few ways that we can better understand your programs:
Self-Assessment: The organization will perform an online self-assessment of their overall employee safety management systems and the focus areas of sharps injury prevention, safe patient handling, manual material handling and ergonomics, violence prevention, and slips/trips/falls. BSI will also provide a review of three years’ worth of injury/loss data analysis, to determine the organization's potential cost savings through implementation of effective programs. The report will include an overall assessment score to illustrate where the current programs are today in relation to best practices for injury prevention, a high level assessment rating of each focus area, and a list of recommendations for the organization to consider and an interactive online webinar to review, discuss and answer any questions regarding the organization's assessment results .
Remote Program Review: In addition to the above self-assessment, a BSI Subject Matter Expert will conduct an in depth review of each of the written programs, training presentations, committee minutes, and other key program documentation to identify areas for improvement. BSI will provide recommendations for improvement for these specific areas within the organization’s summary report as described in the self-assessment. This provides additional specific information for the organization to use in improving their employee safety programs.
Full Program Assessment: In addition to the above two items (self-assessment and remote program review), BSI healthcare injury prevention experts will complete a site visit to verify the actual program implementation and employee engagement. This site assessment will consist of a site inspection, work observations, program stakeholder interviews, staff interviews, and equipment and controls evaluation. Following this assessment, and as part of final report delivery, BSI will conduct a one-day organizational strategy session with the organization’s key program stakeholders, to review the recommendations and develop a detailed implementation plan that the organization can use to begin program improvement.
