Patient Safety Awareness Week Is Coming!

March 5, 2024

March 10 – 16 designated as a week to focus on safety

Next week starts Patient Safety Awareness Week, a time to shine the spotlight on ways to improve safety for patients and the healthcare workforce.

ISMIE’s risk management program puts patient safety at its core. Be sure to check out ISMIE’s Patient Safety Center, a one-stop resource to help reduce risk exposure and support you in providing quality care.

The Patient Safety Center categorizes interventions into approximate levels of effort to be addressed: basic, mid-tier and large-scale, which includes everything from hand-hygiene to preventing mistakes in surgery to workplace violence prevention. While specific strategies used to safeguard patient safety will vary at each practice or facility, the tactics provided will help you consider the best approach for reducing risk.

Share the ISMIE Patient Safety Center with your colleagues and staff! It’s publicly available.
