RISK RESPONSE: The discussion below should focus on how the company will respond if the risks occur. This discussion could also be included as a column in the risk register. (See register for these responses)
1. Risk One, Typhoon, is considered a global risk. A typhoon forms and is large enough to reach the Japanese latex glove supplier to the hospital. It is large enough to shut down the Japanese plant for an extended period of time. This could cause problems for the hospital because they will be temporarily lose their main supplier of latex gloves. The hospital will have to evaluate increasing orders to the other suppliers they currently use and will need to spend more money to obtain larger orders from the other suppliers until the Japanese company can come back to full production.
2. Risk Two, patient slips/falls, can happen when patients try to get out of bed or out of wheel chairs without assistance as well as trying to exercise as instructed without assistance. If a patient falls, this could cause more injury to the patient as well as the potential that the patient will sue the hospital. To prevent any further injury or legal problems, the hospital has policies written to provide instruction to nurses and physicians on how to handle patients that need to get up. All hospital staff are trained when they are hired to help assist patients in wheelchairs and assist patients when getting in or out of bed. Patients are also given special socks that have grips on the soles to prevent slips. This training will help prevent or greatly reduce any slips/falls with patients. If this occurs, staff will provide the needed assistance to the patient as well as report the incident to their supervisor and director for follow-up.
3. Risk Three, infection control among employees, has a greater chance of happening when employees work closely together, do not properly wash their hands, and do not take precautions against spreading germs. The hospital has policies in place that state all employees must wash their hands before entering and after leaving a patients room or when leaving the restroom. There is also a policy that states employees that are sick or contagious will be advised to stay home to prevent the spread of their infectious disease. If there is an outbreak at the hospital, the hospital should make due with less employees until the outbreak is clear or the hospital can potentially call a temp service to fill positions until employees can return to work. Vaccinations, such as the flu, are provided to employees each year as a preventative to those who choose to receive the vaccine.
4. Risk Four, support staff turnover, is a risk to the hospital when staff are not happy with their current positions, pay, or benefits. Any amount of employees that choose to leave the hospital can cause disruptions throughout the hospital as well as reduce the quality of care provided to the patients. This is best mitigated by...
