Patient Safety “Lightning Rounds” at Memorial Sloan Kettering

In recognition of National Patient Safety Awareness Week, MSKCC’s Division of Quality & Safety sponsored the 2nd Annual Patient Safety Lightning Rounds. All staff was invited to share in this great event. Four institutional subject-matter experts discussed MSKCC safety initiatives while groups of staff rotated from speaker to speaker every 20 minutes. The learning was fast paced and fun! The topics for this year’s Lightning Rounds included MRI Safety; CAUTI & Falls Prevention; Patient and Caregiver Education Strategies; Patient Safety System and Process for Event Reporting. Staff gave the program excellent reviews (see below). “I was very impressed with the amount of information that was able to be communicated with such a short time at each station. Concise, interesting, and it was great to be made aware of changes occurring at MSKCC in the Division of Q&S!” For more information on this event contact Robin Moulder, Manager, Division of Quality & Safety at moulderr@mskcc.org.
