adverse event management

Adverse Event Management

The Institute of Medicines defines an adverse event as “an injury caused by medical management” (diagnostic, therapeutic, preventative or related to failures of communication, equipment or other systems) rather than by an underlying disease or the condition of the patient/resident.

The RMS Quick Response Program recognizes that support is needed when unfortunate situations – some with potentially significant negative outcomes – happen to occur. Your healthcare facility can rely on RMS – we are available to assist with the initial response team, investigate the incident, and provide a plan of action to support the healthcare facility leadership team, all with the goal of improving event management outcomes to minimize the potential severity of reactions from families, media, regulators and attorneys.
