Patient Safety Tool: Implementing Patient Safety Rounds Toolkit

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston offers a free toolkit for healthcare providers to implement patient safety rounds.

The patient safety rounds help providers identify and eliminate patient safety risks through two methods: Staff communicate with each other about actual and potential safety problems, and former patients and their family members interview current patients about their perception of safe care.



The toolkit includes organizational assessments, program guidelines, training materials and other resources.

Download the patient safety rounds toolkit for use in your own facility.
