Safety and Security Committee
Descripció del projecte
As a benchmark hospital complex, we have a commitment to patients based on transparency, active risk management and rapid response to any incidents.
In this context, the Safety and Security Committee is working towards a Security Model centred around patients and professionals, guaranteeing that it will:
- Propose and prioritise strategies within patient and professional safety and security
- Promote improvement actions related to the safety and security of patients and professionals
- Monitor safety and security indicators for patients and professionals and evaluate the results
The patient is just as important as the professional caring for them. This is why we are joining forces in risk management across the whole of the care process to maximise benefits and minimise damage. With this in mind, we monitor and adapt care teams to detect risks in transfers (shift changeovers, changes of guard, etc.). We bring together care teams to share patient information and encourage notices as a method of risk and incident communication.
On the other hand, to learn from our mistakes, we monitor results in safety and security issues by monitoring indicators (both patient and professional indicators) and we apply improvement proposals depending on results. Treating professionals correctly means, among other things, providing continuous training. We therefore have a training programme to provide an adequate response individually and collectively.
Finally, looking to the future, we are preparing ourselves for the implementation of telematic notification of complaints and incidents detected by patients. Their opinion is essential to improve the organisational structure and the scope of the measures in our safety and security model.

At Vall d’Hebron we are committed to humanising care, placing children and their families at the core. We offer integrated care, treating the physical aspects of the illness alongside the psychological and social repercussions. This is why our younger patients have access to toys, play areas and a host of activities that promote wellbeing.
There are more than 3,000 nurses and nursing assistants at Hospital Vall d’Hebron. The work they do in the centre is vital and they are leaders both in nursing care and research. Getting to this point was a long process, as Mariona Creus, former nursing director, and Maria Àngels Barba, the current director, recall.
The Neonatology Department’s Sibling Project is a workshop for the siblings of new-born babies admitted to the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit in the Vall d’Hebron Maternity and Children's Hospital. Through simulated games and situations, the project prepares them to get used to seeing their younger siblings in a hospital medical setting.
The winning proposal for the transformation of the Vall d’Hebron Campus is the project directed by Jordi Badia, Antoni Ubach and Miquel Espinet. The project presented by the architects includes a new research building for the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute, with an expandable area of 5,000 m2 and a budget of €15 million funded by ERDF (European Regional Development Fund).
