When it comes to safety in health care, good is not good enough. No health care system is perfectly safe or perfectly reliable. High reliability requires a preoccupation with failures, finding and analyzing defects, and implementing safeguards. A continual focus on improvement and learning is a key component of our safety and quality program at Rush Children's Hospital.
The Patient Safety and Quality program at Rush Children’s Hospital is a model of interdisciplinary collaboration that integrates senior hospital administration with the front-line care providers to ensure seamless communication and to enhance the ability to implement processes that will ultimately improve the quality of medical care.
If you have any questions or concerns about pediatric patient safety please feel free to contact us.
