Defining the Link Between High Patient Volume and Patient Safety

For research in two to three San Francisco Bay Area (SFBA) hospitals on the impact of high patient volume days on the increased likelihood of preventable patient harm. The research will identify high patient volume points at which patient harm is significantly more likely to occur. Following identification of these points, an actionable program for SFBA hospitals will be developed and piloted with the goal of reducing preventable harm during high volume days in at least three SFBA hospitals.
