Building a Patient and Employee Safety HRO Program
Case Study of SCL Healths One Safety Program

  • Event Date:
  • Event Time: Noon Central

High-reliability organizations (HROs), such as those in the airline and nuclear power industries, are distinguished by their use of “zero harm” approach to mistakes that help them maintain high safety records despite their risky environments. Hospitals are now recognizing how this approach can be adapted for their use. In this webinar, learn how SCL Health used the HRO mindset to identify potential hazards, proactively prevent incidents, and reduce employee and patient safety events by 50 percent in two years.

SCL Health’s former vice president and chief safety officer will share how SCL Health developed and implemented its One Safety Program, a comprehensive safety program using HRO methodologies to address both patient and employee safety. SCL Health uses the data from RL’s incident reporting and management software as a foundation for reporting safety events at its inpatient and ambulatory facilities. This has helped drive transparency and shared learnings, and standardize cause analysis of patient events and employee injuries.

Whether your health care organization is looking to adopt HRO principles for safety, or you’d like to hear how to standardize cause analysis data and reporting to further protect the safety of your employees and patients, please join us.
