STOP THE LINE: Empowering our employees and physicians to openly voice patient safety concerns is at the core of BRMC and OGH’s “Stop the Line” program. Introduced in early 2015, the program allows any staff member the power to speak up and “stop the line” with respect to any hospital procedure or action that they perceive may be harmful to patients. “Stop the Line” participation by all staff members, regardless of their position in the hospital, is a basic expectation and underscores the role of each and every BRMC and OGH employee in the creation of our hospitals' culture of safety.
