Patient Safety Awareness Week is March 2 through 8
Sponsored by the National Patient Safety Foundation, National Patient Safety Awareness Week is a time to recognize Michigan hospitals’ commitment to patient safety and to educate staff, patients and the community on the efforts to save lives and enhance the care all patients receive. In collaboration with the MHA Keystone Center, Michigan hospitals have reduced and avoided pressure ulcers, various types of infections, readmissions, high-risk deliveries and more, which has saved numerous lives and more than $116 million in healthcare costs in one year alone. However, more work needs to be done. This year’s theme, Navigate Your Health…Safely, highlights the need for healthcare providers to ensure that patients and consumers are actively engaged in the healthcare process.
