At Lifespan, the safety and well-being of our patients comes first. Our staff monitor all aspects of patient safety, proactively identifying potential failure points in our processes and procedures, and use that information to prevent errors before they occur. We continually measure our progress against local and national standards to ensure that we remain the best in our profession. We compile and publish data about patient safety at Lifespan facilities, and make this information available to the public on our websites.
All of our hospitals use SafetyNet, a patient safety reporting system utilizing performance improvement and patient safety tools developed by the University HealthSystem Consortium, an organization representing the nation's leading academic medical centers. SafetyNet encourages prompt follow-up on patient safety events and identifies trends across the Lifespan system as well as other health care systems of similar size and complexity.
Because we consider patient safety to be an ongoing initiative, we consistently strive to make improvements, and welcome questions from our patients and feedback about the care they received at our facilities.
