The MGH Center for Diversity and Inclusion virtually celebrated the graduation of 46 underrepresented residents and fellows in medicine on June 5. The 2020 graduating class included residents and fellows from 14 different departments.
On Jan. 13, staff who work in departments that provide or support direct patient care will receive the “MGH/MGPO Survey on Patient Safety Culture.” The confidential questionnaire, sent via email from SurveyMonkey, takes about 15 minutes to complete. Results of the survey will be shared with hospital leadership to help guide future quality and safety initiatives throughout the institution.
“Understanding your perceptions about safety will allow us to reinforce and advance our culture throughout departments and across the institution,” says Jana Deen, RN, associate chief Patient Safety Officer. “Candid responses are encouraged as we continue our efforts to enhance patient safety and ensure that all providers are comfortable reporting when something is not right.”
Everyone who completes the survey will be entered to win raffle prizes and weekly drawings for Coffee Central gift cards.
