The Third Semiannual Patient Safety Summit is geared toward Sharp HealthCare-affiliated hospital and outpatient care staff and physicians. Sharp initiated Always Events in an effort to determine root causes of sentinel events. Always Events focuses on improving the delivery of patient-centered care and increasing communication and collaboration among health care professionals, patients and their families.

Guest speakers from Sharp Grossmont Hospital and across the system will share information on the following topics:

  • Achieving performance excellence
  • Hand hygiene
  • Safety initiatives across the system
  • Recent sentinel events related to Always Events
  • Safety during surgery
  • Safe medication initiatives
