Take the Pledge
for Patient Safety

2016 Health Care Professional Pledge

I pledge to download and read the National Patient Safety Foundation’s Free from Harm Report and to hold at least one discussion group with my team about at least one of the report’s recommendations. Further, I will strive to implement practices that work to increase the safety and care of my patients.
