Aurora Health Care Embraces AHRQ’s CUSP Method to Protect Patient Safety
Fourteen hospitals operated by Aurora Health Care in eastern Wisconsin reduced central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI) in intensive care units by 65 percent after adopting patient safety strategies from AHRQ’sComprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP).
CUSP, an evidence-based method that helps clinical teams address safety issues by combining clinical best practices and the science of safety, was implemented at the Aurora facilities from 2011 to 2012.
“Keeping patients safe by preventing healthcare-associated infections is part of our patient safety program,” said Deborah Bonin, a certified professional in healthcare quality and Aurora’s patient experience manager. “CUSP is one resource in our toolkit to build our culture of safety.”
Aurora implemented CUSP across its facilities after two of its hospitals produced noteworthy results.
