One of the most time saving features in SQSS specifically designed to manage to the “1” can be found in how it helps to manage the vast number of quality control activities important to ensuring the safety of the health care environment.
The strength of the innovation/safety equilibrium is the product of a whole host of day-to-day, week-to-week, month-to-month and year-to-year activities that play out in order to collectively defend the line against the multitude of risks that can threaten the life of a patient and the business health of a care provider. Making sure that the generator will come on when necessary to support the continued operation of life-safety equipment, ensuring that caregivers have the appropriate credentials and training for the care they will render, having all patient care equipment functioning properly, knowing that all contractors are performing in ways that protect the patient and ensuring that the skills and competence of the workforce are keeping pace with the constantly changing opportunities that new technology creates are just of few of the thousands of defenses that can determine the integrity of the line.
SQSS is a tool designed to support the healthcare team in managing a growing number of defenses and demands that can max out even the most dedicated caregiver and make protecting the line easier to achieve even when a key member of the team is lost. It feeds the creation of a caregiver/system interface that increases the capacity of the workforce to do more with less potential for error.
