BWH Patient Safety Culture Survey
On Nov. 28, about 8,000 BWHers received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to the 2016 Patient Safety Culture Survey. The confidential insights you share will tell us whether our organizational culture, and the culture in your work area, help us provide safe care. By completing it, you are helping make BWH the safest possible place for patients and staff. Visit BWHPikeNotes.org for more information.
Give Back This Holiday Season at BWH
There are several ways BWHers can give back this holiday season, including donating to our annual Toys for Tots collection. BWHers are invited to bring a new, unwrapped toy to the 75 Francis St. lobby from Dec. 6 to Dec. 8. Toys should be nonviolent in nature and suitable for children up to 12 years of age. Look for the red and white sleigh when dropping off donations. Visit BWHPikeNotes.org for a full list of additional ways you can give back this season. If you know of any upcoming holiday drives or giving programs at BWH, email BWHBulletin@partners.org.
Prevent Bicycle theft With a U-lock
Three bicycles were recently stolen from the BWH bike racks outside the Shapiro building and the Building for Transformative Medicine (60 Fenwood Road). All three bikes were secured with cable or chain locks, which are easily cut by thieves. A U-lock that secures your bike frame and front wheel offers the best protection. BWH also has three secure bicycle cages for employee use, located at 60 Fenwood Road, 5 Francis St. and 10 Vining St. For more information or to sign up to use one of the cages, visit the Security and Parking office in the Neville House on Vining Street or call 617-732-5877.
