    Thank you for providing such valuable resources.  They have helped us share the importance of safety with staff, physicians and visitors.

    We love the Center’s patient safety culture survey feedback reports. The department level reports give a level of granularity we were lacking with previous surveys.

    The Center’s reach and dedication of their staff to collaborative efforts, particularly their introduction of Just Culture to long-term care, distinguishes them in this work.
