Event description
Medical errors are a leading cause of death. This session will cover two critical actions to develop and sustain a culture of safety.

About this Event

Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States. According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, 220,000 to 440,000 people die each year from preventable errors. Only 64% of US staff, who responded to the 2016 Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture’s hospital comparative database felt that reported mistakes led to positive changes.

The American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement/National Patient Safety Foundation Lucian Leape Institute developed a guide “Leading a Culture of Safety: A Blueprint for Success”. This Blueprint is designed to help leaders shape, create and sustain the type of organizational culture needed to ensure patient and workforce safety and inspire healthcare leaders on the journey to zero harm.

This session covers two of the six critical domains to develop and sustain a culture of safety: “Just Culture” and “Behavior Expectations.” It is important to build a culture in which all leaders and workforce understand principles of patient safety and supports the reporting of errors, lapses, miss-steps and adverse events. It allows the organization to learn and find ways to incorporate analysis to improve and embrace prevention of errors and adverse events.

Establishing organizational behavior expectations allows the organization to understand current behaviors of the organization and promote transparency, effective teamwork, active communication, respect and timely feedback, and provide rewards in sustaining a culture of safety.
