Practical Guidance for Patient Safety Organization Implementation tackles the important subject of the Patient Safety Organization (PSO) law and how it can be used to positively impact patient safety in healthcare organizations. It provides the history behind the adverse event reporting movement, offering an overview of previous efforts in patient safety and adverse event analysis. It also discusses the nature of PSOs, and why healthcare organizations should be part of one, providing a detailed survey of the legal, reimbursement, and accreditation considerations that impact an organization's decision to become a PSO or participate in one. Finally, it analyzes the practical aspects of how healthcare organizations can set up their own PSO in accordance with the applicable law.
