What are renal programs in Winnipeg being asked about and measured on?
MRP is being assessed on four identified Required Organization Practices (ROPs) which include specific tests for compliance. They are:
- Infusion pump safety: A documented and coordinated approach for infusion pump safety that includes training, evaluation of competence, and a process to report problems with infusion pump use is implemented.
- Medication reconciliation: Medication reconciliation is conducted in partnership with clients and families to communicate accurate and complete information at ambulatory care visits when medication management is a major component of care.
- Use of two Client identifiers: Working in partnership with clients and families, at least two person-specific identifiers are used to confirm that clients receive the service or procedure intended for them.
- Information transfer at care transitions: Information relevant to the care of the client is communicated effectively during care transitions.
