Revolutionizing Patient Safety Through Organizational Certification

The Maryland Patient Safety Center, in collaboration with Courtemanche & Associates, has created a patient safety certification for organizations. The program is designed to provide organizational certification through Patient Safety Champions, with the Patient Safety Officer as the leader, who network with individuals at all levels of the organization, clinical and non-clinical, and share critical risk reduction strategies to eliminate errors and enhance safety culture throughout the organization.

The nine module curriculum consists of facilitating discovery through affirmative interviewing, use of proactive risk assessment, solutions building, change management, rapid process improvement, fostering accountability and creating sustainability.

Previous organizations, over the course of their participation in the program, experienced:

  • Positive patient safety indicators, including reductions in level I and II events
  • Increases in near miss reporting
  • Increases in un-safe condition reporting
