CRC Press Publishes Groundbreaking Patient Safety Improvement Book by the V.P. of Patient Safety
By: TAYLOR & FRANCIS
Preventable patient safety events are the third leading cause of death in the United States. While most health care organizations know they need to improve patient safety, most lack an understanding of the steps required to develop and implement an effective patient safety program. BSWH has successfully created a strong culture of patient safety.
In 2013, Baylor Health Care System published the book Achieving STEEEP Health Care, which describes its quality improvement journey via the STEEEP® framework of delivering care that is Safe, Timely, Effective, Efficient, Equitable and Patient-Centered.

“In this book, Baylor Scott & White Health has once again illustrated why it's a leader in the field of medicine. If every hospital in America was as direct in its goal to reduce patient harm, we could cut preventable deaths by a significant number. While no one has all of the answers to solving the patient safety problem in this country, Baylor Scott & White Health is leading the way to reach zero preventable deaths. We thank them for their commitment to patients,” says Laura Batz Townsend, Co-Founder and President of the Louise H. Batz Patient Safety Foundation.
