Risk Management and Deficiencies

Part I

In the administration of risk management efforts, every level of management is involved. Consider the challenges the risk manager might face in this effort.

Write a 300-word response to the following:

If you were the chief executive officer of a health care facility, what opportunities would you find to support the risk management effort? What resistance might you anticipate? 

  • Include your own experience as well as two citations that align with or contradict your comments as sourced from peer-reviewed academic journals, industry publications, books, and/or other sources. Cite your sources using APA formatting.
  • If you found contradicting information to what your experience tells you, explain why you agree or disagree with the research.


Part II

Refer to pp. 57–109 of Book I, “The Nebraska Hepatitis C Outbreak,” of A Never Event. In A Never Event, Nurses Mayberry and Winke made several recommendations to Dr. Javed stemming from the Missouri Valley Cancer Consortium audit, but Dr. Javed was reluctant to act on these recommendations.

Write a 300-word response to the following:

  • As a leader, what actions would you take to address the deficiencies identified by the Missouri Valley Cancer Consortium audit and the Nebraska Health and Human Services investigation? How would you prioritize them?
  • What resources might be accessed to assist you as you develop your plan?
  • What systems would you recommend be put in place to prevent this situation from occurring in the future? 

For part II please use any information/article related to this event that shows details about the outbreak.

For both parts please use APA Guidelines, In-text citations and a reference page.
