Just Culture

CaroMont Health and all affiliates support a Just Culture in all areas of the organization.

Just Culture is a system of shared accountability. In the system, organizations are accountable for the design of their systems and supporting safe choices of patients, employees and visitors. Employees are accountable for the quality of their choices. The system recognizes employee choices may not be perfect, but assists them in striving to make the best possible choices available.

In concert with organization leadership, Nurse leaders help support Just Culture in the organization through manager and supervisor education and application of concepts. These Nurse leaders also serve on the project team for a two-year Just Culture Collaborative with other hospitals in our state. We are proud to have several nurses who are certified in Just Culture Training to support this initiative.
