Letter from the CEO

Good afternoon!

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving holiday and that your sports teams of choice
had a winning weekend. It’s hard to believe we are approaching the last month of
2018. We’ve had a great year and I know we’ll finish it off just as strongly as we
started it.
I’m excited to wrap up the year with our December Town Hall Meetings, which start on
the 10th. Please review the schedule on the next page and make sure you carve out
time to attend one session.

Enjoy this beautiful weather! CONFIDENTIAL – Contains proprietary information.

The Importance of Being Identified by the Patient Care Team
with Two Forms of Identification

Identifying patients accurately and matching the patient’s identity with the correct treatment or service is a critical
factor of patient safety.

The most common “wrong patient” treatment error many people may first think of is that of a patient receiving a
medication that was intended for another patient. However, wrong patient medication errors can occur for a variety of
reasons—and during any point—in a patient encounter.

Patient identification mistakes can lead to errors in medication administration, incompatible blood transfusion
reactions, failure to treat a serious illness or disease, medical treatment for erroneous diagnostic lab results, and
procedures being performed on the wrong patient.

To prevent instances of misidentification and near-misses, The Joint Commission requires that two identifiers—such
as a patient’s full name, date of birth and/or medical identification (ID) number—be used for every patient encounter.

Cont’d: The Importance of Being Identified by the Patient Care Team…

Here is an example: Many patients identify themselves by their middle
name or a nickname instead of the name on their patient record. If a
caregiver were to assume they have the correct patient based on the name
the patient uses versus their legal name, it could create a serious and
potentially life-threatening problem when it comes to treatments or
procedures.

Likewise, if a patient has the same name as another patient, as in the case
of Kimberly Young and Kimberly Young (picturedright), or patients who
share names with people in their family and omit the proper suffix (e.g. a
Junior or Senior designation), there is also a risk of misidentification. The
practice of engaging the patient in identifying themselves and using two
patient identifiers (full name, date of birth and/or medical ID number) is
essential in improving the reliability of the patient identification process.

Reduce harmful outcomes from avoidable patient identification errors: Do-
the-2. Verify two patient identifiers—every patient, every time.
