Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP)

Decription

The Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP) was created by Johns Hopkins patient safety researchers and brought to the public domain through the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). CUSP aims to improve patient safety culture while providing frontline caregivers with the tools and support that they need to tackle the hazards that threaten their patients.

The AHRQ toolkit includes training tools to make care safer by improving the foundation of how your physicians, nurses, and other clinical team members work together. It builds the capacity to address safety issues by combining clinical best practices and the science of safety.

It is noteworthy that between 2009 and 2011 the “On the CUSP: Stop BSI [Blood Stream Infections]” succeeded in reducing CLABSIs [Central Line Blood Stream Infections] nationwide. States reduced their adult ICU rate from a baseline of 1.915 infections per 1,000 line days to a rate of 1.133 infections, or a relative reduction of 41 percent.
