The Johns Hopkins Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality, in Baltimore, will work with 750 U.S. hospitals to improve surgical care.

Johns Hopkins Medicine  physicians will share with other hospitals insights on achieving better care to surgical patients in the effort  to improve outcomes and reduce risks to patients nationwide.

The American College of Surgeons will collaborate on the initiative with the Hopkins Armstrong Institute, which has long been  a leader in developing  checklists and other means for reducing medical errors.

“What’s a little different about this is that it focuses on safety, preventing harm that happens to patients in the hospital, but it also focuses on quality,”  Michael Rosen, M.D., an associate professor of anesthesiology and critical-care medicine at the Hopkins Institute, told The Baltimore Sun. “That means making sure after they go in for a surgical procedure that they return to a normal qualify of life as soon as possible.”
