When discussing the health care industry one of the top organizations that come to the minds of many are hospitals. Hospitals utilize quality management to achieve long and short term goals that improve the quality of care and patient safety. Quality improvement management programs are represented by different titles. They have various concepts, influencing factors, and policies that are needed for the success of the organization. These components will be discussed throughout the paper. Key Concepts and Names of Quality Management Various terms represent quality management programs. Some examples are Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI), Total Quality Improvement (TQI), QualityAssurance (QA), and Quality Control (QC). The title of the program depends on the organization. According to McLaughlin and Kaluzny (2006); “TQM more often refers to industry-based programs and CQI typically refers to programs designed for clinical settings” (p. 3). Hospitals are clinical settings, so they would title their programs Continuous Quality Improvement or just Quality Improvement. “Quality Assessments are planned systems of review and Quality Control programs are routine systems used to measure and control quality” (Ipcc, 1996).

As a team consider the following scenario:
On Dec. 7, 2000, the Cincinnati OSHA office heard through media and police reports that there were two deaths at a nursing home in Ohio.
OSHA determined that the FDA should take a lead role in performing an investigation.
Since the nursing home had many residents who had unhealthy respiratory systems, the nursing home routinely ordered and received tanks that contained pure oxygen. During one delivery, the supplier mistakenly delivered one tank of pure nitrogen in addition to the three tanks of pure oxygen that had been ordered. The nitrogen tank had both an oxygen and nitrogen label. An employee at the nursing home connected the nitrogen tank to the nursing home's oxygen delivery system. This event caused two nursing home residents to die, and three additional nursing home residents were admitted to hospitals in critical condition. Within the following month, two of these three additional residents also died, bringing the total death toll to four.
