Emergency care has become very challenging during the Coronavirus Crisis. The 5 Rights of Emergency Care was a framework designed for performance improvement prior to the coronavirus pandemic to prevent patient safety adverse events. Now that families cannot join patients who are seen for emergency care whether they have COVID-19 or not, the value of the framework has increased. Dr. Christopher Peabody who was a lead collaborator with us in the development of the 5 Rights of Emergency Care is the Director of the UCSF Acute Care Innovation Center and is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Emergency Medicine at UCSF. He will walk us through framework. The original SBAR tool developed by Doug Bonacum, formerly of Kaiser Permanente was modified to be used by patients. It offers new value during the current crisis, especially in emergency care.
A reactor panel of leaders including Heather Foster, RN, a national award winning nurse and infection preventionist and emergency medicine caregivers will help reinforce the messages.
