Achieving Safety Across the Board (SAB) is the ability to use a broad and systematic approach toward building a patient centered organizational response to reduce and prevent ALL patient harm—the cornerstone of every hospital and health system. The framework for SAB involves 3 key imperatives: culture, strong safety processes, and engagement. Simultaneous execution of these three imperatives assists with keeping patients, family/caregivers, and the workforce free from harm. The SAB series will highlight efforts to improve the 3 key imperatives, while demonstrating the close association on driving improvement in Hospital Improvement Innovation Network (HIIN) clinical topic areas.
