The Patient Safety Group.
Resource TypeSetting of CareClinical AreaTarget AudienceOrigin/Sponsor
Development of The Patient Safety Group was motivated by the death of a young girl named Josie King. The King family responded to their personal experience from medical errors by making a commitment to improve and advance safety and quality in health care. They created a program entitled eCUSP (electronic comprehensive unit-based safety program) as a mechanism for providers to manage and organize their patient safety efforts.
