Risk and Safety Issues in Critical Care XVI provides care coordination, communication, and documentation strategies to reduce the risks of a critical care patient developing a hospital-acquired pressure injury, a central line-associated bloodstream infection, or ischemic injury related to vasopressor use. Hospital-acquired conditions continue to cause clinical harm, adversely affect patients’ quality of life, and significantly increase overall healthcare costs, despite ongoing efforts to prevent them. Patients in critical care units are often at increased risk of harm, but studies have shown that “hardwiring” prevention efforts can reduce patient risk. This course also explains the required disclosure and documentation when a complication occurs.
