Disclosure: In this section, you will develop key elements of disclosure and incident reporting systems. Specifically, you should cover the following: A. Details: Based on state and federal reporting requirements and the results of the root cause analysis (RCA), identify the details that would be necessary to disclose the error to the patient and family. B. Method and Preparation: How would you suggest disclosing these details to the patient and family? What preparation would be needed for the staff, patient, and family before the disclosure? C. Reporting: What elements of the RCA and corrective action plan (strategies) would need to be shared with accrediting or regulatory agencies? For example, what elements should be reported to the State Department of Health and Human Services? What should be reported to The Joint Commission?
