Hundreds of people on the front lines of health care in Vermont gathered in South Burlington Friday.
The group of doctors, nurses and administrators are taking part in Fletcher Allen Health Care's annual quality symposium.
The goal of the day-long event at the Sheraton is to explore ways to ensure high levels of care for patients in a hospital setting.
"The patient at home should really care because these are all of your health care providers and what they're talking about today is how they can take better care of your family every single time," said Dr. John Brumsted, the CEO of Fletcher Allen.
The group used simulated activities to reinforce skills tied to safety and reliability with an emphasis on communication and teamwork.
