Option #1: Risk Reduction: Preventing Wrong-Site Surgeries
First, read the description of the wrong-site surgery event in Critical Concept 8.2 and the root causes identified by the team who conducted the RCA.
Then, conduct a literature review and internet search for risk reduction strategies aimed at preventing wrong-site surgeries.
For this assignment, you will write a memo addressed to the Chief Nursing Officer. Explain and justify four to six specific strategies that could best prevent a similar event from occurring.
The memo should be well-written and meet the following requirements:
- Two pages (single-spaced) in length
- Include at least three references from the peer-reviewed articles. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find peer-reviewed articles.
- Conforms to CSU-Global Guide to Writing & APA.
