Root cause analysis paper and graph: Chapter 9 also talks about it besides the resources below and please follow the grading rubric. On the last assignment, i sent you the rubric that was followed to score the first assignment but still missed in the 2nd assignment as well. It’s due by next Thursday noon. Please confirm.
Root cause analysis (RCA) is a structured method used to analyze serious adverse events. Initially developed to analyze industrial accidents, RCA is now widely deployed as an error analysis tool in healthcare. A central tenet of RCA is to identify underlying problems that increase the likelihood of errors while avoiding the trap of focusing on mistakes by individuals. RCA thus uses the systems approach to identify both active errors (errors occurring at the point of interface between humans and a complex system) and latent errors (the hidden problems within healthcare systems that contribute to adverse events). It is one of the most widely used retrospective methods for detecting safety hazards (Retrieved April 17, 2015 from Root Cause Analysis | AHRQ Patient Safety Network) .
