MUHA Communications Corner - Annual Quality and Safety Report

It is with great pride that we were able to present our Annual MUSC Health Quality and Safety report to the board of trustees this week. This past year we continued to build on the foundational aspects of a high–reliability organization, including a prodigious Culture of Safety, empowered leadership at all levels of the organization and robust Performance Improvement. MUSC improved in almost every domain with the Culture of Safety survey this year among both hospital staff and resident-attending physicians.

Within this solid foundation, we continuously strive to deliver “STEEPE” care to all patients; this care is “safe, timely, effective, efficient, patient–centered and equitable.”In addition to these foundation aspects, aspirational facets for this year will include:


 


In addition to these foundation aspects, aspirational facets for this year will include:

  • MUSCare plans (evidence based plans–policies–procedures–order sets)
  • Information technology enhancements that bolster quality-safety
  • Human factor engineer experience
  • Transparency of all metrics, including financial, operational and quality

Each year, we approach our Quality and Safety mission with great optimism and enthusiasm as we continuously strive for Zero Harm for every patient, every visit, every day. Thanks to everyone in the MUSC community for supporting us in the laudable mission.
