Safe & Sound: An Arizona patient safety initiative through the Arizona Hospital and Healthcare AssociationPhoenix
, Arizona, USA
This document provides a sample business case for reducing ventilator-associated pneumonia.
Directors/managers who know what changes need to occur in their work areas to support patient safety activities often need to ask for additional financial resources. To obtain those resources a business plan document may be needed to state the case. Since those individuals who are requesting these resources often have a clinical background, the concepts of writing and presenting a business plan document may seem intimidating or overwhelming. This tool was developed to assist and guide them in that process.
Use this example as a reference when developing or modifying a business case in your own organization. Download the tool for complete instructions.
