Respectful Management of Serious Clinical Adverse Events


A serious clinical adverse event is a crisis for everyone involved. Governing bodies and executive leadership carry the burden of these events forever, but carrying the burden isn’t enough. They also have a responsibility to ensure that everything possible is done to understand what happened and why it happened, and to prevent it from ever happening again. These crises have the power to be used to transform the organization to a dramatically better one. The individuals and organizations referenced in Acknowledgements, Appendix D, and the references in this white paper help to show us the way. This is the values-based “true north” of respectful management of serious clinical adverse events—the response that leaders would want for themselves and those they love. Health care leaders owe their patients, family members, staff, and community nothing less.
