Quality and Safety

At Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, quality and safety are our most important priorities. We are focused on protecting children from any hospital-acquired harm and improving every child’s medical care experience. Providing safe, high-quality health care requires consciously built, smart health care systems. We accomplish this by using state-of-the-art information technology and human factors engineering, which considers human capabilities and limitations in the design of products, processes, systems and work environments. Identifying a new therapy is a fraction of the work needed to ensure that the right patients receive that therapy at the right time, at the right dose and for the right reasons — throughout every encounter.

Our publicly reported pediatric quality and safety data can be found online.
