Our Services

Patient Safety:  Whether it is a single patient care area such as labor and delivery or the emergency department, or your entire facility, D Ross Consulting can provide a team of experts to assess, identify and help implement patient safety solutions. 

Medication Safety:  D Ross Consulting will assess the medication use process in your hospital from prescriber to patient.  We will identify the vulnerable, high-risk steps in your process and help you to develop action plans to address areas in need.  With medication safety assessments performed in over 60 hospitals, we know what to look for and how to improve medication safety in your facility.

Pharmacy Operations:  Is your pharmacy department meeting your patients' needs?  Is the staffing too high or too low?  Are your pharmacists taking part in the clinical activities that have been shown to improve patient safety AND decrease pharmaceutical costs?  D Ross Consulting pharmacy operations review will provide a clear picture of what is going well and where there are opportunities to improve.  If needed, we can be an on-going resource to assist your pharmacy director in developing and implementing state-of-the-art pharmacy services.

Are you in need of an interim Director of Pharmacy?  Contact us first, as we may be able to place a D Ross Consulting consultant in your facility who will far exceed your expectations.

Regulatory Compliance:  We will bring in a team to assess your facility's preparedness for the next Joint Commission survey, California hospital MERP survey, or CMS validation survey.  We not only identify the areas of risk, we help you implement the needed changes.  Too late, they've already been there and now you need help?  Call us!  D Ross Consulting has direct experience in preparing hospitals for succesful CMS validation surveys.

Performance Improvement:  We can provide a team to assess your Quality Improvement program, identify opportunities and create plans to rise to the next level of performance.  Whether it is meeting Core Measures, NPSGs, or internal projects, D Ross Consulting is here to help.
