FMEA and Fault Tree Analysis for Preventing Hospital Risks

Duration: 90 Minutes
Before performing any healthcare act, it is important to understand and identify the possible risks. Once we understand and identify what the risks are, healthcare providers need to decide on their response to that risk and the different scenarios they may be faced with. This has to be done before any harm is done to patients. Two methods of doing this are the Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) and Fault Tree Analysis (FTA). The FMEA is a preventative approach to measure and analyze the probability of error. The FTA is an analytical approach that shows the events that can lead to failure from unexpected life threatening scenarios. The FTA diagram appears as a tree, hence the "tree" analysis. It contains many different branches of causes and outcomes based on the scenario. Although both the methods provide information on the causes and effects harm, each analysis is done from different angles. Because healthcare organizations have been traditionally reactive rather than proactive, the Joint Commission began requiring use of FMEA as an accreditation standard in 2002. The purpose of FMEA is to deliver reliability of medical interventions for a standardized process while FTA focuses on delivering patient safety from unexpected mishaps.
