The Patient Safety Group.
Approach to Improving Safety
Setting of Care
- Health Care Providers
- Health Care Executives and Administrators
- Non-Health Care Professionals
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.
