The Children’s Hospitals’ Solutions for Patient Safety National Children’s Network represents the most herculean effort to date by children’s hospitals to create a universally safe and healing environment for all children who are in our care.
With the creation of the SPS National Children’s Network – funded in part by the Cardinal Health Foundation, Children’s Hospital Association and the federal Partnership for Patients initiative – leaders from 135+ children’s hospitals stepped forward and committed to clear, shared network goals of harm reduction by December 31, 2021:
- 80% of SPS hospitals will achieve performance targets in CLABSI, Pressure Injuries and Unplanned Extubations
- Reduce Network DART by 25%
- Reduce Network SSER by 75%
To achieve these goals, CEOs, hospital boards of trustees and clinical leaders are aligning their organizational goals with the network harm reduction goals in a way that is transforming the safety and quality of care delivered in children’s hospitals. Learn more about How We Work.
