Patient safety bowties

Patient safety bowties

This project was set up with the goal of introducing the bowtie risk assessment method into healthcare and to offer encouragement to healthcare organizations, such as hospitals, when performing a proactive risk assessment.

The BowTies developed as part of this project are based on 10 relevant and recognizable patient safety topics. About 1 to 4 example bowties have been developed for each patient safety theme.

Whitepaper COVID-19 risk management

For many organizations and situations, there is no script yet to combat the corona crisis. Measures are devised ad hoc and the effect is often unclear.

Versatec has written a Dutch whitepaper to create safe situations and to stay “in control” and “in compliance”. Download the whitepaper: In compliance with COVID-19 risk management and the bowtie method.

Bowtie in de zorg

Ed Janssen Risk Management Consultancy, 9Lives, CGE Risk Management Solutions

Bowtie in de zorg

Dit project is opgezet met als doel bowtie te introduceren in de zorg en inspiratie te bieden voor ziekenhuizen bij het uitvoeren van een PRI met behulp van BowTieXP.

De bowties die als onderdeel van dit project zijn ontwikkeld, zijn gebaseerd op de 10 thema’s van de VMS praktijkgids. Voor elk thema zijn één tot vier bowties ontwikkeld. Verschillende voorbeelden zijn te zien op deze website.

“Confronted with the results of the analysis everybody realized that the incident could as well have happened to themselves.”

“Developing the bowtie gave us all a deepening insight into the most important risks involved with using the lift within the Medisch Spectrum Twente.”
