“Following the identification of a sentinel event, a root cause analysis must be completed which is a process for identifying the processes or problems that resulted in an adverse event or incident. Identification and reporting of sentinel events with the subsequent root cause analyses allows organizations to implement guidelines and policies to reduce the numbers of adverse effects occurring in hospitals and other health care facilities.”
