Over the past two decades, the US commercial nuclear power generation and commercial airline industries have substantially reduced both the frequency and severity of human error and driven the incidence of significant events to nearly zero.

Simple behavioral tools have played a major role in this success.

Medical Tools handbook_in_handAt PPI, we have modified these tools for Medical Professionals and fashioned them into a fast, simple, and easy-to-use handbook.   Known as the Medical Error Elimination Tools™, they promote  a simple set of behaviors.  When used uncompromisingly, these tools virtually eliminate the potential for human error; error that can lead to worker or patient harm, administration of wrong procedures, protocols or prescriptions, or the spread of infection.   The first eight tools are the “Fundamental Tools”, which should be used at all times when work is being conducted.  These include:
  • Questioning Attitude
  • Stop When Unsure
  • Self-Checking
  • Effective Communication
  • Task Preview
  • Work Area Inspection
  • Procedure Use
  • Patient Care Briefing
The seven remaining tools are the “Situational Tools”.  These tools are to be used when appropriate for the situation, and include:
  • Placekeeping
  • Turnovers / Handoffs
  • Independent Verification
  • Peer Checking
  • Peer Coaching
  • Flagging
  • Post-Shift Review
These tools are fundamental to the Practicing Perfection® approach to human error reduction.  Highly Reliable medical organizations will ensure that every team member has their own copy of the handbook.  Team members will own accountability for their behaviors on the job, and will proactively seek ways to make things safer and more efficient.  Uncompromising use of the Medical Error Elimination Tools will greatly increase the reliability and integrity of team actions and operations. The Medical Error Elimination Tools™ handbooks are sized and shaped to make it easy for workers to keep them handy on the job.
