This before-and-after study examined the impact of a patient safety project which included simulation training, teamwork training, and patient safety educational conferences. The authors found a decrease in hospital-acquired complications, better nurse perceptions of safety culture, and an improved observed-to-expected mortality ratio. These promising preliminary results should spur larger studies of these organizational safety efforts.
