In recognition of National Healthcare Quality Week, October 20-26, the ECRI Institute is offering a free “toolkit” of information resources related to falls, clinical alarms, surgical fires, HIT safety, and other healthcare issues.

The collection includes a self-assessment questionnaire on falls, alarms management resources, risk analysis materials, worksheets and templates for quality improvement and quality assurance efforts, a surgical fire poster, and other quality-related resources. The kit can be downloaded from the ECRI website at no cost, but registration is required.
