Describe one patient care scenario where a safety or quality issue is apparent. This can be something you have experienced in your current practice or one you develop for this discussion. Explain the details surrounding the scenario and the impact of the problem.
Select either the DMAIC or PDSA model, and describe how the model could be applied to address the specific issue in your case scenario. Explain how this process would improve patient-related and organizational outcomes.
The case scenario is of a patient who is 72 years old. The patient got admitted to the hospital due to a fall that they had while at home.
