Conclusions: RCA can be utilized in the aftermath of an adverse event to establish causal factors and identify countermeasures to prevent recurrence of such an event. It can be further augmented with additional change management strategies including Lean, Six Sigma, the Model for Improvement, and failure modes and effects analysis. These strategies allowed us to design effective error-reducing strategies to achieve a more reliable process, which yielded reduced VTE prophylaxis administration defects that in turn has prevented recurrence of hospital-acquired VTE in patients with epidural catheters.
