Here at Mount Sinai Heart, it is everyone’s obligation to ensure patient safety as well as staff safety. We believe in a culture that if someone sees an unsafe practice, it is their duty to speak up and fix the issue. We take patient safety very seriously and expect you to adopt this way of thinking too. This includes, but is not limited to, updating the Morse Fall Scale routinely, implementing our
falls bundle on any patient deemed at risk, and bedside handoffs with checks of all lines, drains, equipment, and environment. Ensuring that all staff members use proper body mechanics while conducting daily activities. If you are ever unsure of practice, always revert back to your policies and protocols or bring the issue to your manager. Help us continue to make Mount Sinai Heart the safest and most proficient work environment possible.
