Answer:

Some examples of possible events that may happen in a Intensive Care Unit are:
- Failure in ventilator´s alarm
- A patient falls from the bed
- Not following correctly hand washing procedures

Many causes can be associated to the above risks, for instance nursing failure due to fatigue, patient´s sensibility or equipment malfunctioning.

My recommendation is to conduct a FMEA analysis , a technique carried out to better identify and reduce errors. It is a systematic tool used to define, detect, prevent, eliminate or control failures, causes and effects of potential errors.

To learn more about risks in ISO 9001:2015 and FMEA you can see the following materials:
