PROVIDENCE – The Children’s Hospitals’ Solutions for Patient Safety National Children’s Network recently recognized Hasbro Children’s Hospital as its November “Hospital of the Month” for its commitment to safety and quality. The national organization aims to reduce safety events, including surgical site infections, readmissions and adverse drug reactions.

Hasbro Children’s Hospital joined the NCN in early 2013. The national group, which currently has 78 hospital members from 33 states, was formed to develop network-wide goals of harm reduction by December 31, 2014.

“Our participation in the National Children’s Network has brought together members from various departments and has tremendously improved our teamwork across the entire hospital,” said Ivona Sediva, medical director of pediatric quality and safety at Hasbro Children’s Hospital. Sediva, along with Myra Edens, administrative director of Hasbro Children’s Hospital, co-lead the hospital’s NCN initiative which the hospital named Drive to Zero.

“It’s exciting to be part of a national network that is placing such a significant emphasis on safety,” said Sediva. “As we enter our second year of being a part of NCN, our initiative continues to engage more and more of our staff. We will not only continue in our current efforts to reduce harm, but also we will work to change the safety culture throughout our entire hospital as we work toward our goal of zero harm to our pediatric patients.”

The national goals of the National Children’s Network include: a 40 percent reduction in hospital-acquired conditions, a 20 percent reduction in readmissions and a 25 percent reduction in serious safety events.
