Risk Watch Quarterly (November '22)
The November 2022 issue of Risk Watch includes articles on the three HIROC patient safety drivers: maternal neonate, mental health death by suicide under care, and patient deterioration. On maternal/neonatal issues, Gold et al. look to organize the rationale and context on the breadth of recommendations provided during COVID-19 for obstetric and neonatal services. On the topic of mental health, death by suicide under care, Berg et al. describe their work on the conceptual development of resilient practices in inpatient suicide prevention. On the topic of prevention of patient deterioration, Kim & Jin develop measures of fit between documented and actual patient vital signs throughout Emergency Department visits, as determined through data from continuous physiologic monitoring.
