National Patient Safety Awareness Week

We can make a difference!

The ISRN membership represents hospitals and universities across the nation. Members of the ISRN can make a difference.

In an effort to raise awareness and encourage the engagement of patients, families, healthcare providers, and the public, the ISRN and the Louise H. Batz Patient Safety Foundation have joined the national effort to raise awareness about safe care.

With Ms. Townsend in the lead, the ISRN joins the mass of voices to underscore the urgency for patient safety. In your own facility, join the nation, the ISRN, and the Louise H. Batz Patient Safety Foundation in the National Patient Safety Foundation’s Patient Safety Awareness Week,
March 3-9 for “Patient Safety 7/365 to celebrate
7 days of recognition, 365 days of commitment to safe care.”

Make your support known to the National Patient Safety Foundation to be counted among the many who are ‘doing something’ about making care better. Take a moment to learn how you can raise awareness in your own organization.

Patient Safety Awareness Week is an annual National Patient Safety Foundation® (NPSF) let education and awareness building campaign for healthcare safety. Each year, healthcare organizations internationally take part in the event by prominently displaying the NPSF campaign logo and promotional materials within their organizations and deploying NPSF educational materials to staff.
