The Child Health Patient Safety Organization® (PSO) provides a collaborative environment where member hospitals confidentially share their safety cases, discuss solutions, and work together to address the most pressing challenges they face in an uncertain world and health care environment.

Engagement in the PSO is one way hospitals ensure they understand and address the leading patient safety topics in the country. We prioritize learning themes from our top safety event categories identified through voluntarily reported cases and analysis of our monthly safe tables, weekly huddle discussions, alerts, annual meeting, and other offerings—meaning our learning network provides comprehensive, timely updates on the most relevant and important safety issues in children’s hospitals.

In 2022, we extended our medication event classification taxonomy to better understand the contributing factors to these events, and we began exploring issues related to electronic health records, such as medication reconciliation and alerts/triggers. As we look to 2023, we will provide new opportunities, enhancements, and solutions to meet the evolving needs of our membersincluding self-assessments, technology upgrades, and learnings in ambulatory care. The chance to spare a child from experiencing serious preventable harm will continue to drive our shared purpose within the PSO.
