b. Identifying caregiver burnout and improving the resilience
Adapting “Enhacing Caregiver Resilience: Burnout & Quality Improvement Protocol” by Duke University Health System Patient Safety Center, it is expected that the work pressure of our staffs would relieve and the psychological state of mind would bloom.
c. High-Fidelity, Simulation-based Team Resource Management (TRM) Training
Training started in 2010 and is provided to physicians and nurses from Emergency Department, Intensive Care Unit, medical ward as well as the surgery team. After initiating the very first TRM class in 2007, we aim to bring all the knowledge and skills into the practice on the floor via simulation in order to enhace the teamwork and patient safety.
a. CAD patient process improvement
By applying six sigma and implementing several improvement steps, the median door-to-balloon time < 90minutes is reached. Furthermore, 90% percent of CAD patients with door-to-balloon time less than 90 minutes, which is better than the 75% as recommended by the American Heart Association (AHA).
b. Blood transfusion safety
After analysing the risks of blood transfusion process, the all-in-one PDA was used to streamline the blood transfusion process, which reduce the human errors to the minimal.

c. Chemotherapy safety
To evaluate risk and vulnerability in the chemotherapy process using a proactive risk analysis method, Healthcare failure mode and effect analysis (HFMEA) was adopted to identify potential chemotherapy process failures. Computerized physician order entry was adopted to eliminate potential risks in chemotherapy processes. Te errors of chemotherapy were totally eliminated.
d. RFID in surgical patients
In order to improve management competency and to enhance patient safety, we in-cooperate radio-frequency identification (RFID) and web-based database technologies to develop a Patient Advancement Monitoring System (PAMS) in the operation theater. The RFID-initiated PAMS provides caregivers’ instant, wireless information sharing with minimized data entry work loading. The alert and error-prevention functions of PAMS enhance protection of patient safety and improve quality monitoring. Managers are able to execute real-time, on-line management decisions to further improve operation theater utilization efficiency. The data captured can be analyzed to monitor surgical quality from risk and outcome perspectives.
e. Central line bundle care implementation
By implementing central line bundle care program, we introduced 5 evidence-based interventions, the catheter-related bloodstream infections (BSIs) rate at our ICUs has dropped and maintained at the rate of 6‰ and 3.6‰ for medical and surgical ICU, respectively.
f. Surgical specimen handling safety
An automatic clinical pathology tracking system (ACPTS) is establishmed after re-engineering surgical specimen handling workflow. The ACPTS contains four functional features, including logistic registration and tracking of surgical specimens, automatic bar-code tag generation, security control of the database and security control of refrigerator.
