Transforming hospital safety: How the pandemic is serving as a catalyst for change
Held at the two-year anniversary of the World Health Organization’s declaration of the COVID-19 pandemic, this webinar panel of hospital leaders discussed the challenges they’ve faced in the last two years — as well as the steps they are taking to improve the future of hospital safety for patients, staff and visitors.
The panel of infection preventionists, pharmacists and hospital executives also shared insights from the fourth annual Hospital Patient Safety Report. Based on a January 2022 survey of 100 hospital leaders, the report reveals hospitals’ biggest safety challenges and priorities.
Key webinar learning points:
- Safety challenges exposed by the pandemic
- Safety improvements made at the outset of the pandemic that had a long-term impact
