Patient Safety Awareness Week is Here. Let’s Get Started!

In the spirit of recognizing that #WeAreAllPatients:

Learn More, Do More

Fact: One of the primary responsibilities of health care workers is to check the identity of patients and match the correct patients with the correct care (e.g., laboratory results, specimens, procedures) before that care is administered

Action you can take: Thank your health care providers for asking! If they don’t, speak up.

Resources to learn more: Download tips for patients from the NPSF report Safety Is Personal. Read a summary by the World Health Organization of the need for proper patient identification and suggested actions to ensure it.
