Reporting Adverse Events and Ethics

Reporting Adverse and Sentinel Events

Evergreen Nursing Services strongly believes in the reporting of adverse and sentinel events by all staff, as reporting such events provide the necessary information for addressing their root causes. Reporting adverse and sentinel events are an invaluable step in the cycle of making improvements in the care provided. In the absence of knowing of potential harm or harm events, corrective action cannot be taken to prevent reoccurrence of such events.

Ethics Framework

This Framework is a tool for Evergreen Nursing Services medical staff to use when facing difficult decisions and circumstances. Ethics is about making "right" and "good" choices and the reasons given for the choices and actions we make and take. In a health care context, ethics promotes reflective practice in the delivery of services. Ethics addresses the question "What should we do and why?". An Ethics Worksheet is included to assist in ethical decision making.
