Quality/Patient Safety Goal:

Reduce Patient Harm

Why this measure is important

Many Hospital-Acquired Conditions effect hospitalized children. We are working to reduce these events of harm so no child suffers harm while in the care of our hospital.

How we measure

We collect data for eight specific Harm Events. This data is collected and displayed as a count and a rolling 12-month count.

Patient Harm Index

What are we doing to improve?

  • Implementing standardized practice of care bundles that have been shown to minimize harm.
  • Partnering with other Solutions for Patient Safety (SPS) hospitals to share and test interventions that reduce these events.
  • Implementing focused teams for each harm type that use QI Science to test and implement interventions that are proven to reduce harm.
