Building Infrastructure

Infrastructure is needed to design, implement and evaluate the work of patient safety in the organization. At The Johns Hopkins Hospital, a patient safety director oversees this work through the creation of a safety strategic plan.

Patient safety at Johns Hopkins includes the organizational-level capacity to identify and improve upon our major risk areas, measure and improve culture and improve medication safety. It also involves the active work by a patient safety committee, which represents caregivers, staff and patients, to oversee the implementation of our strategic vision.
