AFT2 AFT Task 2 Accreditation Audit
A. Summary
A1. Sentinel Event Description
According to the Joint Commission, a sentinel event refers to an unanticipated event
within the healthcare setting, which results in a demise or grave bodily or emotional harm to
one or more patients (Carroll, 2016). Such death or injury is not related to the patient’s
natural course of illness. It may also be one of the many other circumstances that are defined
explicitly by the Joint Commission, which may not result in the death or significant injury to
the patient. Sentinel events are investigated and responded to immediately. The abduction of
a patient when they are receiving treatment or other healthcare services within the hospital
fits the definition of a sentinel event as espoused by the Joint Commission’s definition.
The abduction of a patient by their non-custodial parent at Nightingale Hospital as
described fits the definition of a sentinel event. In the sentinel event, a patient, Tina, who
happens to be a minor, is discharged earlier than the time expected by their custodial parent.
The child disappeared from the hospital after a minor surgery. Tina’s mother had asked to be
allowed by the pre-op nurse to attend to the patient’s older sibling outside the hospital as the
operation and recovery proceeded. However, a lapse in the discharge policy at Nightingale
Hospital allowed Tina’s father to take custody of her even when he had not been the one that
took her to hospital. Tina’s father had divorced with her mother and was not the custodial
parent as her mother had full custody. Nightingale Hospital’s loose discharge policy did not
have restrictions for who was allowed to discharge a minor after the end of the hospital
procedure.
