Your Super Simple FIRST Step Toward Reducing Medical Errors

Medical Error Elimination Tools™ Handbook

Over the past two decades, the US commercial nuclear power generation and commercial airline industries have substantially reduced both the frequency and severity of human error, and have driven significant events to nearly zero.

Simple behavior tools have played a major role in this success

At PPI, we’ve taken the same tools used by these industries and fashioned them into a format that’s fast, simple, and easy to use.

The Medical Error Elimination Tools™ handbooks offer quick on-the-job reference for each behavioral tool: WHY to use it, WHEN to use it, and HOW to use it- providing the ideal format for pre-job review, as well as for reference 
(if needed) while work is in progress.

The Medical Error Elimination Tools™ handbooks are sized and shaped to make it easy for workers to keep them handy on the job. They are printed on tear-proof / waterproof material for durability on the job. 

We highly recommend that every member of your team has (and uses) their own copy of the handbook.

The Power Tools

We refer to the first five tools as the power tools. You could begin your implementation with targeted focus upon these alone.

These Tools form the foundation for error reduction at the point of making a choice / taking an action (as well as for use of the remaining tools).
The Power tools include:
  • ​Questioning Attitude
  • ​Stop When Unsure
  • ​Self-Checking (aka "START")
  • ​Effective Communication
