Quality and Risk Management in Healthcare

I need help. I don't know how to start on this project. I don't know what a scholarly composition is or how I should go about starting this.

-Steps a risk manager must take to address these events

-Impact these events could have on organizational performance, compliance, and accreditation

The case study is attached.

Much appreciated.
Thank you.
