SAFE reports (Stanford Alert For Events) are for reporting an event that does not follow safety best practices in patient care and in our workplace. SHC is committed to providing an environment that allows reporting in good faith without fear of retaliation. No adverse actions will be taken against someone for making a report in good faith.
Submit a SAFE Report
There are 3 SAFE reporting options:
- Fully Anonymous
- Anonymous, but identify level of training (ie, resident, fellow)
- Benefit: Provide data for trends/dashboard
- Not possible for direct feedback and follow-up
- Self ID
- Benefit: Easier to obtain direct follow-up
- In some cases, due to employee confidentiality, follow-up is limited

High Value Innovation Challenge
Congratulations to the inaugural winners of the high value innovation challenge!
Joshua Jaramillo, MD (RSC Co-Chair, General Surgery Resident) for his project on “Reduction of Unnecessary SICU admissions for Rib Fracture Patients”
Branden Tarlow, MD (GI Fellow) for his project on “Elimination of low-value inpatient fecal occult blood testing.”
Given the current economic environment as well as evidence that high value care can be provided at lower cost, it is imperative to identify and eliminate waste in medical care while maintaining or improving quality. The purpose of the high value innovation challenge is to engage our residents and fellows to generate novel ideas to promote high value care and reduce unnecessary costs.
The second cycle of the challenge is already underway! Refer to the proposal form below and submit your email proposals to Dr. Lisa Shieh at email@example.com. Deadline is February 15, 2020.
Winners are awarded $500 and their proposals will be referred to Stanford’s Cost Savings Reinvestment Program:
