Health care and emergency medical systems groups are perfect fits for using ICE according to the doctors who have participated so far.....emergency room professionals have endorsed the use of ICE as has Consumer Reports as well....to name just two....have experience working evaluating hospital safety programs for wc and gl insurance and benchmarking performance against others in this area. Hope to provide useful input here too.

Hi All. This looks like an interesting community being started. I work at a large teaching hospital in Ontario, Canada. Our current safety priorities are violence, infection control, and musculoskeletal injuries.
