Our Approach to Risk Management

About Devereux’s Risk Management Committee

Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health has recently undergone a significant change in organizational leadership with a renewed focus on operational, clinical and risk-management best practices. This critical advancement of the entire organization included a transition to a culture of Servant Leadership with a greater emphasis on safety, quality and accountability.

A key development and result of this transition has been the creation of the Devereux Risk Management Committee. This committee is made up of an interdisciplinary team of senior leaders with a targeted focus on the most critical metrics to ensure client safety and success.

Through a data-driven approach, this team has identified key areas of improvement and has made significant progress in advancing Devereux’s mission to unlock and nurture human potential for people living with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences.

Key Actions Taken by Our Risk Management Committee

  • Enhanced incident reporting from the individuals we serve and staff
  • Enhanced incident investigation protocols
  • Enhanced employment screening tools and protocols
  • Enhanced protocols around individual/staff interactions and travel
  • Enhanced reviews and evaluations for direct support professionals

These efforts, along with many other actions taken by this committee, represent a comprehensive effort to redefine what it means to provide the most innovative and compassionate care in the behavioral healthcare space, coupled with unparalleled safety and security tools and technology.
