The assessment is built around an assessment of events, probability of occurrences, patient effect, intensity of the organization's response needed to address the risk, and the organization's preparedness to address the risk at the current time; with these elements scored in conjunction with important factors such as IC issues related to geography and community, resistant organisms, services provided, staff issues and communication, environment, supplies and emergency management. The assessment drives a score for the important components and allows the organization to prioritize based on the severity of the total score.
