Disruptive behavior between clinicians is a problem that undermines the culture of safety. In this issue Walrath and colleagues report on their study of RN and physician experiences with disruptive behavior and its impact on clinicians, patients, and the organization. In another study Stimpfel and Aiken found that extended shift lengths were associated with higher odds of reporting poor quality and safety. Many institutions use employee surveys as a means of gathering data on the safety of the environment and perceptions of the culture in their organizations. Davidson and colleagues explain how they translated employee feedback on safety issues into actionable items. Other articles in this issue describe the frequency of risk factors for injurious falls and potential for their prevention from the perspectives of nurses, safety issues in ambulatory care, a nurse-led safety program with executive walkrounds, a bundle of safety interventions that reduced the number of interruptions during medication administration and decreased medication errors, a new model of nursing shift report that included both recorded and bedside components, and more.
