Do your hospital units know the number of patients they are harming? Are there displays of current levels of harm in the unit? Come to this session prepared to share with your colleagues how your organization is working at becoming transparent about safety problems.
Visit three units in your hospital and try to find displays of the current levels of harm (rates, number of patients harmed, etc.). Ask six randomly selected staff members, “how many patients are being harmed by _____ in this unit each month?” and see if anyone knows the answer.
