Safe Table Builds on Previous RCA² Trainings

Posted on February 23, 2018

The MHA Keystone Center hosted a safe table Feb. 21 in Livonia. Safe tables offer a legally protected environment for MHA Keystone Center Patient Safety Organization (PSO) members to discuss a variety of patient safety topics that hospitals are currently facing.

Nearly two dozen PSO members attended the event, which built upon 2017 root cause analysis and action (RCA²) trainings. The previous RCA² events primed participants for in-depth discussions and high-level concepts. Participants left the safe table with actionable methods of RCA² process improvement regarding senior leadership engagement and incorporating “Just Culture” principles to better support staff. Both are crucial to fostering a culture of speaking up and having open conversations to uncover and address root causes.

The topic of root cause analysis transcends all areas of harm, whereas most safe tables are more narrowly focused on a specific issue. This allowed for a better exploration of member experiences and opportunities for ongoing support.

Attendees were also able to discuss areas of excellence and provide insight for others to consider relative to their own processes. Members with questions should contact the MHA Keystone Center PSO.
