One of the six focus areas of the ACGME Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER) program is patient safety. During the CLER site visit the sponsoring institution (WSU) will be assessed on opportunities residents have for reporting errors, unsafe conditions, and near misses. In an effort to make it easier for the WSU residents/fellows to access the information we have consolidated the reporting information from all of our partner training sites into a central location. Please remember the goal of these reporting systems is not to punish anyone but to fix the system and prevent medical errors.
- To report or not to report, that is not the question. You gotta report!
- Pathophysiology of Medical Errors
- I’m a physician. I’m human. I make mistakes
- Inattentional blindness, unintentional consequences
