Hospital Accreditation Program National Patient Safety Goals Effective January 1, 2013 Goal 1 Improve the accuracy of patient identification. Use at least two patient identifiers when providing care, treatment, [ and services. NPSG.01.01.01 Elements of Performance for NPSG.01.01.01 Wrong-patient errors occur in virtually all stages of diagnosis and treatment. The intent for this goal is
two-fold: first, to reliably identify the individual as the person for whom the service or treatment is intended; second, to match the service or treatment to that individual. Acceptable identifiers may be the individual’s name, an assigned identification number, telephone number, or other person-specific identifier. - Rationale for NPSG.01.01.01- Use at least two patient identifiers when administering medications, blood, or blood components; when collecting blood samples and other specimens for clinical testing; and when providing treatments or procedures. The patient's room number or physical location is not used as an identifier. (See also MM.05.01.09, EPs 8 and 11; NPSG.01.03.01, EP 1) 1. Label containers used for blood and other specimens in the presence of the patient. (See also NPSG.01.03.01, EP 1) 2. Eliminate transfusion errors related to patient misidentification. NPSG.01.03.01 Elements of Performance for NPSG.01.03.01 Before initiating a blood or blood component transfusion: - Match the blood or blood component to the order. - Match the patient to the blood or blood component. - Use a two-person verification process or a one-person verification process accompanied by automated identification technology, such as bar coding. (See also NPSG.01.01.01, EPs 1 and 2) 1. When using a two-person verification process, one individual conducting the identification verification is the qualified transfusionist who will administer the blood or blood component to the patient. 2. When using a two-person verification process, the second individual conducting the identification verification is qualified to participate in the process, as determined by the hospital. ]
