Preventing Failure to Rescue

Failure to rescue is a well-established issue impacting patient safety and healthcare quality. It occurs when there is a failure or delay in recognizing and responding to in-hospital patient complications or change in patient status, leading to death. In this August 29th webinar, Dr. Kathleen Mau, Senior Director of Nursing Education at Cleveland Clinic, will discuss causes of failure to rescue, barriers to timely recognition and intervention for early signs of deterioration, and an enhanced early-warning system that alerts nurses to subtle changes in patient conditions and supports patient assessment, contextual evaluation of clinical data, provider notification, interdisciplinary collaboration and timely intervention.
