Abstract

Executive SummaryTo maximize the potential of patient safety initiatives, health care facilities must first establish a culture of safety.Doing so means regularly measuring culture at both the departmental and administrative level, identifying problem areas, sharing findings, and seeking feedback to motivate change.Standing up at a safety committee meeting and asserting that patient safety is integrally tied to culture very well may illicit puzzled looks and placating smiles from skeptics. Don't be discouraged.
