At Lifespan, the safety and well-being of our patients comes first. Our staff monitor all aspects of patient safety, proactively identifying potential failure points in our processes and procedures, and use that information to prevent errors before they occur. We continually measure our progress against local and national standards to ensure that we remain the best in our profession. We compile and publish data about patient safety at Lifespan facilities, and we make this information available to the public on our websites.

All our hospitals use SafetyNet, a patient safety reporting system that uses performance improvement and patient safety tools developed by the University HealthSystem Consortium, an organization that represents the nation's leading academic medical centers. SafetyNet encourages prompt follow-up on patient safety events and identifies trends across the Lifespan system as well as other health care systems of similar size and complexity.

We also report patient outcomes in several categories to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Its website, Hospital Compare, makes it easy for patients to see how often hospitals across the country provide the recommended care for certain common conditions. Information at the Hospital Compare website rates quality of care for adult patients treated for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, and surgery.

Because we consider patient safety to be an ongoing initiative, we consistently strive to make improvements, and we welcome questions from our patients and feedback about the care they receive at our facilities.

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Providence, RI
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lifespan (Providence, RI) in November 2015.


    They called me about a full time job. Then the job that they actually had was part-time. I felt like I was going to be a victim of bait-and-switch but the recruiter assured me that the original job had been filled in house. I know they are obligated to consider internal candidates first.
