CRITERIA 1

Analyze the missed steps or protocol deviations related to an adverse event or near miss.

COMPETENCY

Plan quality improvement initiatives in response to routine data surveillance.

NON_PERFORMANCE:

Does not list the missed steps or protocol deviations related to an adverse event or near miss.

BASIC:

Lists the missed steps or protocol deviations related to an adverse event or near miss, but fails to analyze

how they led to the adverse event or near miss.

PROFICIENT: Analyzes the missed steps or protocol deviations related to an adverse event or near miss.

DISTINGUISHED:

Analyzes the missed steps or protocol deviations related to an adverse event or near miss, and identifies

knowledge gaps, unknowns, missing information, unanswered questions, or areas of uncertainty (where

further information could improve the analysis).

Comments:

Alexander, great work on your analysis of the missed steps leading to the security issue of the technology

attack at Mountain View Medical Facility. In your analysis you discussed some of the knowledge gaps and

unknowns as being the lack security measures.

CRITERIA 2

Analyze the implications of the adverse event or near miss for all stakeholders.

COMPETENCY

Plan quality improvement initiatives in response to routine data surveillance.

NON_PERFORMANCE:

Does not list the implications of the adverse event or near miss for all stakeholders.

BASIC:

Lists possible impacts of the adverse event or near miss for stakeholders, but fails to analyze their short- or

long-term implications for the stakeholders.

PROFICIENT: Analyzes the implications of the adverse event or near miss for all stakeholders.

DISTINGUISHED:

Analyzes the implications of the adverse event or near miss for all stakeholders, and identifies

assumptions on which the analysis is based.

Comments:

Alexander, you did a great job addressing the implications related to the missed steps leading security issues.

Your discussion was comprehensive including all stakeholders. You also spoke to your assumptions which

you based your thoughts. Well done in this section!

CRITERIA 3

Evaluate quality improvement technologies related to the event that are required to reduce risk and increase patient safety.

COMPETENCY

Plan quality improvement initiatives in response to adverse events and near-miss analyses.

NON_PERFORMANCE:

Does not list quality improvement technologies related to the event that are required to reduce risk and

increase patient safety.

BASIC:

Lists quality improvement technologies related to the event that could reduce risk or increase patient

safety, but fails to evaluate how those technologies were used, or how they could be more usefully

employed.

PROFICIENT:

Evaluates quality improvement technologies related to the event that are required to reduce risk and

increase patient safety.

DISTINGUISHED:

Evaluates quality improvement technologies related to the event that are required to reduce risk and

increase patient safety, and identifies criteria that can be used to evaluate the technologies.

Comments:

Alexander, good job identifying the need for modern technology. This is a great idea to provide a safer

environment. To achieve a higher-grade level consider speaking to a specific technology that would help

prevent the insecurity event from occurring, how you would use or implement something to help keep some

of the information safe? You need to also include the criteria you will use to evaluate the improvement.

CRITERIA 4

Incorporate relevant metrics of the adverse event or near miss incident to support need for improvement.

COMPETENCY

Evaluate quality improvement initiatives using sensitive and sound outcome measures.

NON_PERFORMANCE:

Does not identify relevant metrics of the adverse event or near miss incident to support need for

improvement.

BASIC:

Attempts to identify some metrics relevant to the adverse event or near miss incident, but omits some

relevant data or fails to meaningfully show how metrics relate to the event or incident.

PROFICIENT:

Incorporates relevant metrics of the adverse event or near miss incident to support need for improvement.

DISTINGUISHED:

Incorporates relevant metrics of the adverse event or near miss incident to support need for improvement,

and evaluates the quality of the data.

Comments:

Alexander, Thank you for providing the areas that your metric information would come from that you would

use to develop the metric to improve a safe information environment. To achieve a higher grade, consider

providing numerical data to justify the need for intervention? What about the quality of the data at your facility

and once researching technologies what is the quality of the data in the literature?

CRITERIA 5

Outline a quality improvement initiative to prevent a future adverse event or near miss.

COMPETENCY

Plan quality improvement initiatives in response to routine data surveillance.

NON_PERFORMANCE:

Does not outline a quality improvement initiative to prevent a future adverse event or near miss.

BASIC:

Attempts to outline a quality improvement initiative to prevent a future adverse event or near miss, but it

is not clear that QI suggestions are based on research or best practices.

PROFICIENT: Outlines a quality improvement initiative to prevent a future adverse event or near miss.

DISTINGUISHED:

Outlines a quality improvement initiative to prevent a future adverse event or near miss, and impartially

considers conflicting data and other perspectives.

Comments:

Alexander, I appreciate your identification of the importance of the communication for your QI project. Now,

what should be done? What is the focus Who should implement? How will staff be trained? How will the

initiative be evaluated? Make sure that your plan is based upon best evidence supported by the literature and

speak to conflicting data and multiple perspectives to meet the distinguished benchmark.

refer to your Resource tab in the course for additional APA and writing support. You can also reach out to

your tutor for additional help. Capella uses the 6th edition APA guidelines which can be purchased in book

form if that is easier for you. Here is a Smarthinking link for you to utilize as

well. https://campus.capella.edu/web/tutoring/home# Here is a link to the Capella Writing Center that is very
