bayview campus

The expansion of the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, directed by epidemiologist Jonathan Zenilman, M.D., will support and strengthen the community of clinicians, researchers and administrators there who are focused on the Armstrong Institute mission: eliminating preventable harm, improving patient outcomes and experiences, and reducing waste in health care.

The faculty, staff and residents at Johns Hopkins Bayview are already engaged in innovative patient safety and quality improvement initiatives. At the core of our work to improve patient safety and quality of care is the conviction that change must be driven and embraced by faculty and staff at the local level. We believe in tapping the expertise of those who know their institution, their department or their clinical area best, and then connecting them with resources to succeed.

Goals

  • The new Armstrong Institute location will help to unify and coordinate these efforts across clinical departments, nursing and hospital administration.
  • Creating an innovation hub and incubator for quality and safety projects, and funding those projects via seed grants
  • Further integrating the Johns Hopkins Bayview community with the resources and training opportunities of the Armstrong Institute
  • Increasing the pace and flow of innovations from Johns Hopkins Bayview to flow to the Armstrong Institute and Johns Hopkins Medicine
  • Working across settings and disciplines to redesign health care delivery processes, such as discharge

Dr. Zenilman, who joined Johns Hopkins in 1989 and has worked at Johns Hopkins Bayview since 2003, has a long track record as a patient safety champion. Reducing central line-associated bloodstream infections, implementing antibiotic stewardship and developing interventions to reduce infections in burn patients are among the efforts he has spearheaded. His institutional knowledge and ability to work across disciplines make him an ideal leader for this effort.
