At HCA, patient safety is a top priority. This week is Patient Safety Week, an annual education and awareness campaign for health care safety led by National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF), and is a time for healthcare providers and patients alike to focus on the steps we can all take to improve patient safety. This year’s theme is “Navigate Your Health…Safely” and we have a few Patient Safety focused posts schedule throughout the week that touch on this. Today, we want to kick things off with an infographic that provides an overview of some of the simple actions we can all take to contribute to a safer environment for all.
