Designing a Culture of Safety - Surgery Department & OR Staff Collaboration

On Wednesday May 1st the Department of Surgery and the OR Staff combined efforts to work on identifying barriers and developing solutions to continue the journey on designing a culture of safety in the O.R. Over 80 staff and physicians were in attendance. Great participation and collaboration on this team effort. An idea board will be available in the O.R. to continue with these efforts. We will post the next steps at a later date.
