Time Period Ending:  3/31/2013

What We Are Doing:

All of our processes are regularly reviewed and improved wherever possible. Should an unexpected event occur, we immediately report this under Washington State Adverse Event policy. If such an event should happen, we review it using our Root Cause Analysis process. This process helps to determine if any action or therapy could have been handled in a different manner and steps are put in place to help prevent a similar situation from happening again.
