Rhode Island Hospital is committed to promoting a culture of safety. We require our staff members to be responsible and accountable for their actions, to address and report safety risks of any sort, and to work individually and collaboratively to prevent errors. Toward that end, employees participate in training, learn new systems and processes, and work to implement improvements as needed.
At Rhode Island Hospital, ensuring that patients remain safe at all times and are totally satisfied with the professional medical services we provide remains our highest priority.
Rhode Island Hospital and its Hasbro Children's hospital utilize a system of automated medication dispensing. Installed in all patient units, this "closed-loop" medication system is designed to enhance patient safety and reduce the human opportunity for error.
Making sure that each patient gets the right amount of the right medication at the right time is a key part of our commitment to patient safety at Rhode Island Hospital.
