    Do any of you have any metrics you use or communication/education for staff re: inappropriate disclosure.  examples - wrong AVS given to wrong patient, wrong referral, etc.  We don't have a huge number of these, but leadership is interested in tracking and was wondering if anyone had any tools or communication/education specific to these type of disclosures?  thanks for anything you are willing to share!

    Sheila...most of what I see folks doing is tracking those items you listed using some type of tracking and trending method.

    The idea is to show what is the level of this activity at some type of "baseline" assessment...and then to show any trends over time, particularly as they reflect intervention to minimize these types of incidents.

    Good luck!
