Welcome, Introductions, and Updates

September meeting minutes were reviewed.

The members introduced themselves and answered the question, “Since our last CSI-Duluth meeting in October, what questions or comments have people expressed to you about CSI-Duluth?”

The current members discussed board terms. Members with terms ending were given the opportunity to state whether they would chose to continue at the end of this year.

Shane Roche will call facilities prior to the next meeting to recruit new members on the committee.

Members decided that this committee will continue to meet on a monthly basis, and will hold a December 2007 meeting.

Review of the meeting evaluations were completed. It was approved to send the evaluations and notes to Jan Garard for her review. Discussion was held on the positive reviews provided from staff members that attended the education seminar.

New topics for the next education seminar were discussed. Ideas were discussed such as root cause analysis and culture change. The committee agreed to review a speaker that is looking into a pilot project on root cause analysis in nursing homes.

The group decided to look into other potential venues for the meeting rooms for future training sessions.

Geoff Ryan will forward the newsletter on emergency preparedness to Shane. The newsletter will be sent to administrators and directors of nursing. It will be a beneficial and useful tool for best practices.
