Series Description:
Every year, thousands of people mourn the preventable death of loved ones caused by hospital errors, injuries, accidents and infections. Over the last two decades, health care leaders have partnered with national, state and local experts to decrease incidences of harm through the successful implementation of harm reduction strategies, development of tools and technologies to decrease human error and application of educational programs that produce skillful health care professionals. Health care workers are an instrumental part of moving our nation toward a healthier future, as many are committed to enhancing a Culture of Safety at their organizations. As our nation looks ahead to a post-pandemic world, let’s come together to build a safe and resilient health care system by creating an environment where safety culture prevails.
