TeamSTEPPS™ comes to Piedmont Fayette Hospital’s Maternity Center

Piedmont Fayette Hospital, recently ranked third in patient satisfaction among metro Atlanta hospitals, according to the recently-released HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) survey, is taking yet another “Stepp” towards improving their quality of care and patient safety. They are partnering with Healthcare Team Training, LLC (an Atlanta based company) to implement TeamSTEPPS (Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety) within their Maternity Center.

TeamSTEPPS is an innovative medical teamwork program that was co-developed by the US Department of Defense and Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. 25 years of research and evidence shows that implementing this program will reduce medical errors and improve patient safety. Healthcare Team Training is a world-class provider of teamwork consulting and training services. Their professional staff includes practicing physicians, surgeons, nurses and anesthetists.

For the first time, Healthcare Team Training brings medical teamwork expertise to Piedmont Fayette Hospital. They will conduct physician and staff teamwork training using the latest techniques in simulation for improving teamwork in PFH’s maternity center.
