Safety Begins With Me

Patient safety is vital and cannot be underestimated — and neither can workplace safety for nurses. In 2013, the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated specific healthcare settings, such as hospitals and long-term care facilities, had a total case rate of 6.4 work-related injuries and illnesses for every 100 full-time employees. As a result, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration‘s deputy director issued a memo on June 25, 2016, to guide inspections in healthcare settings.

Patient’s safety is everyone’s responsibility. Even within a healthcare environment where things can easily turn chaotic when patients become acutely ill or when faced with a combative patient, It is still possible to achieve and maintain safety. Safety can be achieved through an organization of JUST CULTURE.
