Medication error in a selected healthcare facility such as providing the wrong dosage of medication or the wrong medication to a patient. A bow-tie analysis places the critical incident at the center of the framework and identifies in graphic format the root cause leading up to the incident on the left side of the critical incident. On the right side of the incident, key preventive measures are graphically represented. In one image, you will capture the incident (at the center), the causes for failure in quality, and (on the right) preventive measures a manager can put in place to stop this failure from happening in the future. The final graphic will appear as a bow-tie.
Articles and resources on the application of a bow-tie analysis have been provided in this week’s readings for the student’s reference.
