Joint Commission issues new Sentinel Event Alert about culture of safety

The Joint Commission today published its newest Sentinel Event Alert (SEA), which addresses the role of leadership in creating a culture of safety, namely that leaders’ first priority is being held accountable for the safety of patients and staff. Leaders are expected to find flaws and gaps in the care process and ensure that they are resolved.

The SEA comes with an infographic on the “11 Tenets of a Safety Culture.”
