Risk Management in Obstetrics Gynaecology
Risk Management is defined as the process whereby an organization anticipates the potential for injuries or losses and acts to avoid
those injuries before and/ or to ameliorate them after they occur. There are many evidences that Health Care should adopt the
principle of Risk Management.
Objectives of Risk Management:
• Minimize risk to quality of service and patient outcomes
• Ensure provision of a safe and ef fective service
• Manage risks in partnership with patients, staf f, the community and other healthcare providers
• Seek to learn from mistakes and not to blame
The Risk Management Process:
• Risk identification
• Risk Analysis
• Risk Treatment
• Risk Register
• The National Context
Most errors go unnoticed or unreported.
No doctor or nurse comes to work to harm a patient, that is the very last thing they would want to do.
Conclusion: To err is human. To cover up is unforgivable. To fail to learn is inexcusable.Author(s): Abubakr Elmardi
