FMEA “is a systematic, proactive method for evaluating a process to identify where and how it might fail, and to assess the relative impact of different failures in order to identify the parts of the process that are most in need of change” (Mastrian & McGonigle 2019). Because a huge point in safety cultures is that there is no shame or blame placed on those who report an error, all employees are encourage to do so as soon as they are observed. An analysis of a potentially deadly medical or system error cannot occur without those who witnessed the event firsthand. These people could be included in the analysis and implementation process to reward their prompt reporting and encourage others to do the same. An added bonus is their early buy in for the new process because they helped create it.Mastrian, K., & McGonigle, D. (2019). Informatics for Health Professionals (2nd ed.). Jones & Bartlett Learning.
