“First, do no harm” is one of the fundamental tenets of health care professionals. Setting a goal of zero harm means making care safer for both patients and clinicians. Achieving this goal requires organizational transformation and leading with safety—starting with the executive team and C-suite leaders. But zero harm is at the intersection of more than safety—it also includes quality, engagement and the patient experience.
Tejal Gandhi, MD, Press Ganey’s chief safety and transformation officer and an executive sponsor of Press Ganey’s Safety 2025: Accelerate to Zero initiative, explores the broader definition of zero harm. Gandhi shares strategies and tactics to show how leading organizations are innovating and transforming a culture to build engaged, resilient care teams that deliver safe, high-quality care.
Learn about the broader definition of harm, beyond physical safety. In addition, Gandhi discusses Press Ganey's Equity Partnership and the importance of defining diversity, equity and inclusion—and how doing so can help an organization achieve its goal of zero harm.
