Patient Safety Indicators (PSI)
We are struggling with our volume of PSI 4 cases (Post Operative death in elective admissions OR admission that has surgery within two days of admission and have a diagnosis of Sepsis, Shock, PE/DVT, or GI hemorrhage)
I'm looking for information on CDI workflow and approach to PSI reviews please.
Does anyone email the provider notifying them that they have a case that hits PSI 4, that they will get a CDI query, and then provide education on documentation considerations that may resolve the PSI?
This has been suggested but I am very concerned about potential risk doing this.
Grateful for any thoughts and/or suggestions.
