Quality and Patient Safety

Quality and Patient Safety

Sidra Medicine is committed to providing world-class, safe, efficient, highly reliable, quality care to our patients and their families. Achieving high quality outcomes and experience is central to everything we do; our vision and objectives reflect this priority.

Quality healthcare is described as a triad of patient safety, clinical effectiveness and patient centered care.

At Sidra Medicine we will achieve a Patient Safety Culture through the STEEEP model:

  • Safe: avoiding injuries to patients from the care that is intended to help them.
  • Timely: reducing waits and sometimes harmful delays for both those who receive and those who give care.
  • Effective: providing services based on scientific knowledge to all who could benefit, and refraining from providing services to those not likely to benefit.
  • Efficient: avoiding waste, including waste of equipment, supplies, ideas, and energy.
  • Equitable: providing care that does not vary in quality because of personal characteristics such as gender, ethnicity, etc.
  • Patient centered: providing care that is respectful of and responsive to individual patient preferences, needs, and values, ensuring that patient values guide all clinical decisions.

Delivering world-class care means ensuring that each patient benefits from the highest quality and safest care possible. As a result, everyone at Sidra is focused on quality and safety.
