The MHA Keystone Center held its inaugural Patient Safety Organization (PSO) Annual Meeting May 9 at the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center in East Lansing. Nearly 75 MHA Keystone PSO members participated, virtually and in-person, from more than 50 hospitals across Michigan and Indiana.
The one-day, interactive event focused on the delivery of results on broad safety goals and specific areas, such as effective root-cause analysis and culture improvement. It also featured three keynote speakers — Joseph DeRosier, PE, CSP, safety engineer; Allan Frankel, MD, co-founder of Safe & Reliable Care; and Mike Personett, president of NextPlane Solutions, LLC.
Attendees learned how to develop strategies to guide their organizations toward a highly reliable culture, implement change by reviewing trends from adverse event data and statewide culture survey results, and discover how human factors engineering can help ensure safety, effectiveness and ease of use in work environments.
The MHA Keystone Center PSO works with members on a daily basis to adopt a strong cultural stance on patient safety by emphasizing the importance of improvement at the organizational and unit levels. For more information, contact the MHA Keystone Center PSO.
