Great Lakes Partners for Patients: Patient Safety Week Celebration

The Great Lakes Partners for Patients (GLPP) HIIN is recognizing the great work by hospitals in Wisconsin, Michigan and Illinois in celebration of Patient Safety Awareness week. The GLPP has created a mailer that is going out with infographic table tents that hospitals can display in their employee and public spaces such as cafeterias, reception & waiting areas, etc. The table tents will highlight reductions in patient harm occurring across the 3 states in CAUTI, CLABSI, Hysterectomy surgical site infections, Ventilator-associated pneumonia, Post-op blood clots and the inclusion of patient and family bedside shift huddles at over 50% of hospitals. The letter further iterates the celebration is in honor of their participation in the GLPP HIIN and that the hospital associations are proud of the successes in furthering the cause for patient safety and overall reduction in harm.
