The Quality and Safety Committee
The Quality and Safety Committee of the Section of Hospital Medicine is dedicated to creating and sustaining a work environment that fosters safe, efficient and patient-centered care. By developing a system for educating the section in the skills of quality improvement, we work together to identify and address shared areas of opportunity.
Specific areas of emphasis include:
- Improving the clinical care of patients with pneumonia.
- Improving resident education in the inpatient environment.
- Developing a prioritization tool to optimize Quality Improvement efforts in the section.
