“Do no harm.” It’s the ultimate goal of all health care professionals as they strive each day to improve the lives of their patients.  This priority is the central theme of HARI’s quality improvement and patient safety work plan – the Zero Harm Collaborative. 


The initiative is the cornerstone on which all other programs, initiatives and objectives are built. 

HARI and its members work together as we strive to achieve “Zero Harm” in Rhode Island.  Learn more about the programs under the initiative including:
