Random thoughts on patient safety & quality

Going about reading articles on patient safety and quality.  Here are few random thoughts

  • One of the articles states that organizations have patient safety officers who don’t have the vision to bring about change.  Was wondering what if organizations would ensure that such experts are clubbed together with leaders (managers/directors).  That will create an atmosphere where the technical stuff and ground situations are easily communicated between the experts and the frontline staff.
  • Was reading somewhere how a CEO created an atmosphere where hand-hygiene was part of the culture.  Not sure how that CEO implemented, but one of the things that needs to be done is that he/she should follow the same while visiting clinical areas.  It will convey a very positive message.  I know it is quite a daunting task considering the number of initiatives that need to be promoted.  But the management should at least follow those that are part of strategic focus.
