Tools You Can Use: Tracking Safety and Mitigating Risk in Healthcare through Facility Design

A Safety Risk Assessment (SRA) is required as part of the 2014 FGI Guidelines for the Design and Construction of Hospitals and Outpatient Facilities. To support this, The Center for Health Design has been developing a toolkit to provide a systematic way of addressing the underlying conditions that may cause risk for adverse events in healthcare. This process offers teams a way to proactively engage in safety-based discussions early in the process with opportunities for check-ins throughout the project lifecycle. The presenters will offer a detailed look at the recently released tool, along with a walk-through of the process guide to help participants understand the scope, as well as methods to undertake the SRA.
