This brief writeup shares preliminary observations from a case-study of two eastern U.S. hospitals in the Surgical Unit-based Safety Program (SUSP), a national initiative of the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality at Johns Hopkins aimed at reducing the rate of surgical site infections (SSIs) and improving perioperative safety culture. The work uses ethnographic methods to theorize about factors related to organizational context that influence safety reform.
