The Rhode Island Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Collaborative is the first state-wide collaborative of its kind in the nation. Thanks to the Collaborative's comprehensive training for hospital staffs in the science of safety and improvement techniques, many lives have been saved and significant reductions of ICU-related complications state-wide have been reported.
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, physicians, nurses, technicians and hospital administrative staffs work as a team to provide patients with outstanding surgical, medical and critical cardiac care. We work together to diagnose, study, treat and prevent cardiovascular diseases.
The Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence® has been given to just 4 percent of the more than 6,000 critical care units in the United States.
