Patient Care

Culture of safety remains crucial in trauma care, threats must be overcome
A culture of safety in trauma care is a transparent, blameless environment where any events transpiring in patient care may be raised by anyone involved and then be reviewed objectively.

Performance improvement (PI) is a mindset of continually seeking patient care improvement, even when outcomes are good. PI includes a series of steps, starting with event identification, or detecting a potential issue in an individual's care.
