  Title Identifying and correcting communication failures among health professionals working in the Emergency Department Type Journal Article
  Year 2013 Publication International Emergency Nursing Abbreviated Journal Int Emerg Nurs  
  Volume 21 Issue 3 Pages 168-172  
  Keywords Adult; Efficiency, Organizational; Emergency Nursing; Emergency Service, Hospital/*organization & administration; Female; Hospitals, Pediatric; Hospitals, Teaching; Humans; *Interdisciplinary Communication; Italy; Male; Patient Care Team/organization & administration; *Patient Safety; Pediatric Nursing; *Process Assessment (Health Care); Risk Assessment; Safety Management/*organization & administration; Communication failures; Non-technical skills; Paediatric Emergency Department; Patient safety  
  Abstract OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify effective corrective measures to ensure patient safety in the Paediatric Emergency Department (ED). METHODS: In order to outline a clear picture of these risks, we conducted a Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) and a Failure Mode, Effects, and Criticality Analysis (FMECA), at a Emergency Department of a Children's Teaching Hospital in Northern Italy. The Error Modes were categorised according to Vincent's Taxonomy of Causal Factors and correlated with the Risk Priority Number (RPN) to determine the priority criteria for the implementation of corrective actions. RESULTS: The analysis of the process and outlining the risks allowed to identify 22 possible failures of the process. We came up with a mean RPN of 182, and values >100 were considered to have a high impact and therefore entailed a corrective action. CONCLUSIONS: Mapping the process allowed to identify risks linked to health professionals' non-technical skills. In particular, we found that the most dangerous Failure Modes for their frequency and harmfulness were those related to communication among health professionals.

  Title Reducing uncertainty in triaging mental health presentations: examining triage decision-making Type Journal Article
  Year 2014 Publication International Emergency Nursing Abbreviated Journal Int Emerg Nurs  
  Volume 22 Issue 1 Pages 47-51  
  Keywords *Decision Making; Emergency Nursing; Humans; Mental Disorders/*diagnosis/nursing; *Nursing Assessment; Psychiatric Status Rating Scales; Triage/*methods; *Uncertainty; Cognitive Continuum Theory; Decision-making theory; Emergency department triage; Mental health; Uncertainty  
  Abstract Little is known about how emergency department (ED) nurses make decisions and even less is known about triage nurses' decision-making. There is compelling motivation to better understand the processes by which triage nurses make decisions, particularly with complex patient populations such as those with frequently emotive mental health and illness issues. While accuracy and reliability of triage decisions generally have been improved through the introduction of standardised triage scales and instruments, other factors such as lack of knowledge or confidence related to mental health issues, past experiences that may elicit transference and countertransference, judgments about individuals based on their behavioural presentations may impact on decisions made at triage. In this paper, we review the current research regarding the effectiveness of triage tools particularly with mental health presentations, present a theoretical framework that may guide research in understanding how triage nurses approach decision-making, and apply that framework to thinking about research in mental health-related triage. Developing a better understanding of how triage nurses make decisions, particularly in situations where issues related to mental health and illness may raise the levels of uncertainty, is crucial to ensure that they have the skills and tools they need to provide the most effective, sensitive, and compassionate care possible.
