Culture of Safety

Safety is our most important value - first, do no harm.

Swedish is committed to a culture of safety. We use the Shared Leadership model to develop the leadership, staff and medical-staff tools called a Safety Bundle. 

**As of mid-2019, Swedish has switched to a new program, Caring Reliably.  To register for this program please visit the Swedish Intranet page and scroll to the bottom for Caring Reliably class registration information and website.  This must be accessed by a Swedish computer or on the network.**
