We Lead For Safety: The Pledge
Leading for safety is a daunting challenge that requires strength and courage. Committed leaders lead with intent. They set the purpose and direction within their organizations—they lead for zero harm. Committed leaders do not allow for delays or excuses. Instead, they are ready to strategically face areas of improvement, and are eager to assess and sustain a culture of safety. In the healthcare industry, with lives on the line, every step to reduce medical error must be taken with purpose and direction.
“Healthcare is one of the most complex industries in our world. Amid all of the pressing priorities, we must remember that the elimination of harm to our patients and workforce is our foremost moral and ethical obligation.”
—Gary S. Kaplan, MD, FACMPE
—Charles D. Stokes, RN, BSN, FACHE
