Patient Safety Resources

Next week I’ll be attending the HSLANJ meeting with a training on Patient Safety.  I believe it is this one.  Since all of the material is online I was checking the bibliography and the notes.  Scary stuff!  

I also found myself at the Joint Commission site with the WHO collaboration and their own pages.  Next time at the doctor’s I’m gonna’ “Speak Up”

    Another great resource for patient safety is Dr. Gail Gazelle:

    “Every day in the news there is something about medical errors, people succumbing to hospital-acquired infections, doctors even operating on the wrong side of the body. Dr. Gazelle, MD, FACP, FAAHPM, has written a wonderful, easy-to-read booklet full of tips for how people can have a safe and healthy hospital experience. From how to stay safe from germs to what questions to ask the doctors, to how to make sure your pain gets treated, all you need to know is right here. Whether it is your mother or a business client who is going into the hospital, “Don’t Leave the Hospital Sicker Than You Went In!” is a great resource tool for every patient!!
