Our Results

The Children’s Hospitals’ Solutions for Patient Safety (SPS) Network is an unparalleled, collaborative effort among children’s hospitals working to transform pediatric patient safety in pursuit of an urgent mission: to eliminate serious harm across all children’s hospitals. The Network has compelling evidence that shows that if the SPS Prevention Bundles are implemented reliably, the Network will reduce harm.

Employing high-reliability concepts and quality improvement science methods, SPS is focused on reducing harm by preventing readmissions, serious safety events, and the ten hospital-acquired conditions (HACs) below:

Through implementation of the Network’s best practices, children are being protected from harm. Since 2012, this national effort has led to an estimated savings of more than $121 million and saved 6,686 children from serious harm, with a consistent upward trend in harm prevented every month (as of May 2016).
