Resumen

COSTA, Priscila Cumba de Abreu et al. Failure mode and effect analysis in the preparation and dispensation of chemotherapy. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.58, pp.68-108.  Epub 18-Mayo-2020. ISSN 1695-6141.  http://dx.doi.org/eglobal.389551.

Aim

Conduct a Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) to prospectively identify the risks related to the preparation and dispensation of chemotherapy drugs at an outpatient unit of a reference center in oncology.

Methods

The first six stages of Failure Mode and Effect Analysis were used to identify dangerous situations and assemble a team; define the process to be analyzed and describe it graphically; apply a host of ideas to identify failure modes; prioritize failure modes and conduct risk analysis; identify potential causes of failure modes and redesign the process.

Results

Seventeen failure modes were identified, two of which were classified as high risk: changing the output window for the drug and miscalculating the intrathecal drug dose.

Conclusions

The possible failure modes related to the process analyzed were identified; in addition, it was possible to define potential causes of these risks.
