Date & Time:   August 7, 2020 at 12pm CT


Maintaining a safe physical environment for patients, staff and visitors is more than being ready for a survey or words on a plan or policy. Rather, it is the day-to-day focus, by staff at all levels, doing their part to ensure that safety is more than a word; but a way of life that demonstrates the reason, and not the rule, for maintaining a safe environment of care.


Upon completion of the webinar, the participant will:

  1. Understand the reasons for maintaining a safe environment of care
  2. Understand the importance of department-focused daily activities as part of an organizational culture of safety
  3. See how written policies and management plans support departmental ownership of safety
