A Culture of Safety

MUSC measures its “Culture of Safety” every year by a standardized safety survey. The survey measures many different “domains” of what our employees think about how important safety is within MUSC. Results show that we perform better than other “like” hospitals – those that are large hospitals with more than 500 inpatient beds.
