Promoting Patient Safety
At St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital, safety is a key strategic goal. Patient safety is an integral part of patient care and we want to ensure that you and your loved ones receive the highest quality of healthcare services in the safest manner possible. To that end, our staff is committed to follow the best practice guidelines and standards in the industry. This Hospital continuously strives to improve and evaluate the delivery of our services.
Some of the initiatives that STEGH has adopted include:
- A Just Culture policy that promotes patient safety throughout the organization.
- Patient Safety Council that directs and monitors all patient safety initiatives.
- Weekly Patient Safety Leadership ‘Walkrounds’ to promote safety throughout the hospital.
- Safety briefings to address any concerns in a timely fashion.
