Innovative Solutions for Keeping Patients Safe
Patient Safety Initiatives in Maryland

Healthcare providers are engaged in numerous activities to continually improve quality of care and enhance patient safety. Each year, MPSC collects and publishes information about quality and patient safety initiatives taking place in Maryland and across the region.

The 2009 edition of the Directory of Solutions was distributed in April at the Fifth Annual MPSC Patient Safety Conference, attended by more than 1,500 healthcare professionals. It showcases 102 patient safety initiatives taking place at 33 healthcare facilities in Maryland and Delaware. Healthcare providers submitted solutions to MPSC as a way to share best practices with their colleagues. This represents a remarkable willingness to break down the barriers between facilities and engage in collaborative improvement with the goal of providing safety to all patients.

Initiatives included in the 2009 MPSC Directory of Solutions are provided below, organized by topic area. Click here for an overview of solutions.
