Leadership WalkRounds—derived from the business management approach of "management by walking around"—are being more widely used as a means of error detection and improving safety culture. This report from a children's hospital, in which structured walkrounds by nursing and physician leaders were implemented on six units, found that this approach increased staff engagement in safety efforts, identified hidden system flaws, and resulted in the successful implementation of multiple quality improvement projects. Although this study did not specifically measure the effect of walkrounds on safety climate, prior studies have found conflicting results, which might imply that different methods of performing walkrounds may influence their success.

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.
