Hospital Patient Safety Program
Hospitals need to protect their patients. Hospitals infect about 1/31 patients. This is the rate that hospitals damage patients. Hospital Patient Safety Program takes a page out of the Toyota Production System and uses an andon system to rid the hospital of HAI defects.
Hospitals pay for those defects. They pay lawyers, they pay insurance companies, and they pay in bad press. Hospitals will put up billboards showing how they love their patients yet make no effort to protect those patients.
If the HAI rate was posted on a big banner at the entry to your hospital would you be proud? It’s time to put the patient’s first.
