Learn how to adopt CUSP—the Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program—to energize patient safety efforts among frontline providers and tackle the hazards that threaten patients.
CUSP is a five-step program designed to change a unit's workplace culture—and in so doing bring about significant safety improvements—by empowering staff to assume responsibility for safety in their environment. Adopted by more than 40 units at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and thousands of units outside of Hopkins, CUSP has been used to target a wide range of problems: patient falls, hospital-acquired infections and medication administration errors, to name a few.
CUSP was also used by more than 1,100 intensive care units across the United States in a highly touted project that reduced central-line associated bloodstream infections by 40 percent.
