Abstract

Psychological safety is valued in other high-risk industries as an essential element to ensure safety. Yet, in healthcare, psychological safety is not mandatorily measured, quantified, or reported as an independent measure of safety. All members of the healthcare team's voice and safety are important. Calls for personal, physical or patient safety should never be disregarded or met with retaliation.
