Sentinel Event Alert. January 26, 2010;(44):1-4.
The Joint Commission issues Sentinel Event Alerts to highlight areas of high risk and to promote the rapid adoption of risk reduction strategies. Adherence to these recommendations is then assessed as part of Joint Commission accreditation surveys at health care organizations nationwide. This newly released alert targets prevention of maternal death. Whereas a past alert focused on death and injury among newborns, this one highlights the leading causes and prevention of maternal death, including failure to manage blood pressure, paying attention to vital signs following cesarean section, and hemorrhage. The alert also provides recommendations around educational strategies, identifying specific clinical triggers for action, and conducting adequate risk assessments.

In this position statement, the American College of Physicians recommends that educators recognize and optimize the hidden curriculum in physician training through promoting an expectation of professionalism as a core value, empowering learners to raise concerns about safety, and modeling empathy, reflection, and discussion of positive and negative experiences in the training environment.
