Donate to United for Patient Safety Campaign

Your support is critical. Help us move the needle toward safer health care for all. One in 10 patients develops a health care acquired condition during hospitalization. Medical error causes the death of 44,000 to 98,000 hospital patients a year.

Donations made through this campaign site will be utilized to support the work of the United for Patient Safety campaign and Patient Safety Awareness Week.

The United for Patient Safety campaign works to highlight and reinforce that all of us within the health care system have a role to play in keeping patients safe and free from harm. 

As part of the campaign, Patient Safety Awareness Week, which takes place each March, serves as a dedicated time and platform for growing awareness about patient safety.
