PSO "Safe Tables" Result in Fall Prevention Interventions

June 26, 2012    |   By: Calevir

The Missouri Center for Patient Safety now offers “Safe Tables” for its Patient Safety Organization (PSO) members.   What is a “Safe Table”?   It’s a members-only shared learning meeting among health care providers to network and exchange patient safety experiences and best practices in an open, uninhibited and legally protected environment.   The venue allows participants to share de-identified adverse events with other hospitals, gain input and support and learn from their own mistakes as well as the mistakes of others.   Ultimately, the end result is safer care for patients in all the participants’ hospitals.   View Fall Prevention Interventions developed at the Safe Table held in April 2012.
