gency response team in management of a patient with anaphylaxis.
Following SbCST, a report was provided to the clinic's leaders within 24
hours. Administrative and operational leaders then identified which LSTs required immediate corrective action prior to the clinic opening and which LSTs
could be rectified at a later point. Multiple opportunities for improvement
were identified, including repositioning of the sharps container in each exam
room, addition of hand foam to the outside of each clinic room, and updated
signage to clarify clinic exit doors. Transition planning also included additional education on the location and availability of emergency supplies, physician training on the use of electronic tracking boards, and simulation training
for the emergency response team. Application of SbCST prior to the opening
of the Center for Advanced Pediatrics helped to ensure operational readiness
and ease transitioning by promoting preparedness and training of the staff.

be devised and implemented prior to opening.
This timeframe also allows for a second round of
SbCST so that clinical teams can repeat the scenarios to validate solutions or process changes,
as well as test design alternatives.
SbCST can be applied to any new clinical
space to evaluate the built environment to
identify latent conditions, optimize the environment and care process, and improve healthcare outcomes. Integration of SbCST into the
pre-occupancy evaluation process places safety
at the forefront of planning and has the potential to impact how healthcare facilities are built
and tested in the future. 

PLANNING SUCCESS

Project teams looking to conduct SbCST should incorporate the process
into the project timeline from the onset of any new construction or renovation planning (ideally, six to eight months prior to opening). This will ensure
there's enough time to engage stakeholders, perform a needs assessment, and
conduct simulations. The facility should be operationally ready for simulations with equipment and supplies stocked where appropriate, to increase the
fidelity of simulations and allow clinical teams to effectively and accurately
test the system and processes. Project teams should also allot two to three
months between simulation and facility opening so that solutions to LSTs can
