Rhode Island Hospital is committed to promoting a culture of safety. We require our staff members to be responsible and accountable for their actions, to address and report safety risks of any sort, and to work individually and collaboratively to prevent errors. Toward that end, employees participate in training, learn new systems and processes, and work to implement improvements as needed.
At Rhode Island Hospital, ensuring that patients remain safe at all times and are totally satisfied with the professional medical services we provide remains our highest priority.
Rhode Island Hospital and its Hasbro Children's hospital utilize a system of automated medication dispensing. Installed in all patient units, this "closed-loop" medication system is designed to enhance patient safety and reduce the human opportunity for error.
Cathy Duquette, PhD, RN, Lifespan's executive vice president of nursing affairs, explains the culture of safety fostered at Rhode Island Hospital and the systems in place to protect patients from adverse outcomes.
