2015 Recipient: Mount Sinai Hospital
Safe Patients/Safe Staff™ Program
Across acute care organizations, a growing subpopulation of patients admitted for medical/surgical care exhibit challenging behaviors due to delirium, dementia and/or mental illness. These behaviors compromise care and increase staff risk of physical harm and burn-out.
At Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH), the innovative Safe Patients/Safe Staff™ (SP/SS) Program was developed and implemented to improve outcomes for this vulnerable population and the staff who provide care. SP/SS is a novel, organization-wide strategy consisting of a behavioral rapid response team,
automatic electronic surveillance, standardized intervention tools and multimodal education.
