Envisioning a safety culture - The perspective of one psychiatric hospital

Read More
 
To me, it’s one of the most moving and inspiring, parts of surveying an accredited psychiatric hospital. As the last day rolls around and the leadership session begins invariably the subject of high reliability in health care comes up. That topic usually spawns talk of how staff and leadership envision a safety culture at their facility. As a surveyor and field director, I have had the privilege to witness many of these conversations, and they rarely fail to move me.
