I think this is backwards. Healthcare has placed emphasis on patient safety since 2001 with little change. Some facilities are now placing emphasis on Employee Safety and I believe this translates to safer patient care. If you don't comply with the rules and policies that keep yourself safe you are most likely not complying with the rules and policies that keep patients safe.
