What is Just Culture?
Health care is a complex business. Bedside care providers must tend to the safety, dignity, privacy, comfort and medical needs of patients -- all within an ever-changing environment of care. To take the next steps, Banner Health is focusing on patient safety by creating an open and just and learning environment by using Just Culture principles. Just Culture principles align with our Mission, Vision, Values and Core Behaviors by:
- Proactively managing risks and behavioral choices while ensuring accountability
- Designing safe systems
- Responding in a fair and consistent manner to adverse events and the people who are involved in them
- Learning through transparent dialogue about risks and safety expectations.
