Welcome Aboard Safety Voyagers!

While there are many blogs and sites discussing the need and importance of patient safety, I would like to offer a fresh approach to it by including the need to recognize a systems approach to both patient and caregiver safety along with prevention of errors.

The Just Culture concept by David Marx and the Human Culpability decision tree by James Reason are excellent tools for us to merge these two crucial value chains in the health care field. I hope we can all benefit from this interface and welcome all and any comments as well.

Stay Safe!!
