Platte Valley is committed to safely delivering care and eliminating harm for patients and associates. In fact, the entire SCL Health System wants to increase patient safety – that’s why all care sites in the system are working to become High Reliability Organizations (HRO). What does that mean?
Accidents sometimes occur in hospitals because our work is risky and complex. HRO’s are organizations that have succeeded in avoiding accidents and catastrophes despite their high-risk environments. To reach our goal of becoming one of these organizations, everyone who works here will need to be involved and trained on how and why errors occur. We’ll also need to adopt safety behaviors that will improve our safety culture.
To help you learn these skills, a Healthstream assignment sent via e-mail will allow you to register for a two hour training course. Almost two dozen HRO training courses are scheduled at various times and on multiple days in our conference center over the next 5 months. Every PVMC hospital associate is required, and compensated, to attend one training session. The number of seats are limited by the size of our conference rooms so register for your preferred session as soon as possible and no later than August 31, 2018. Sign up to learn more about your role in making PVMC an HRO!
