Don’t Text and Drive

GiaCare is committed to educating employees on the dangers of texting and driving. 

Distracted drivers pose a deadly risk to everyone on the road, causing nearly 9% of all motor vehicle accident (MVA) fatalities. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states that there are three common types of distraction:

  • Visual (taking your eyes off the road)
  • Manual (taking your hands off the wheel)
  • Cognitive (taking your mind off of driving)

Accepting Gifts from Patients

You provide care during a difficult time in the lives of your patients and their families, so it’s not unusual for your patients and their families to offer gifts as a gesture of appreciation. However, there are ethical boundaries that must be considered when accepting gifts. While some gifts are given for cultural reasons or genuine gratitude, some come from a psychological need or a desire to exercise influence over care. Learn more about how to handle gifts ethically.

Understanding Elder Abuse

Elder abuse is an intentional act or failure to act that causes or risks harm to an adult age 60 or older. Abuse can occur at the hands of trusted individuals like caregivers and family members. Preventing abuse is a far better outcome than responding to it. You can help stop it before it starts by:

  • Listening to older adults and their caregivers to understand challenges and provide support
  • Educating yourself and others about how to recognize and report elder abuse
  • Learning how the signs of elder abuse differ from typical signs of aging
  • Check in on older adults who may have few friends and family members

Error Reporting and Disclosure

Preventable adverse events in hospitals used to be the leading cause of death in the U.S. It’s vital for providers to report all errors, whether they caused harm or could have caused harm. One study showed that more than 90% of errors resulting in adverse events were considered preventable. Reporting near misses, which can occur 300 times more frequently than adverse events, provides critical insights that hospitals can use to develop proactive strategies for reducing errors and adverse events.
