Patient Safety Program
is our number one job. Health care is very complex and this puts us at risk for
making errors. Doctors, nurses,
and other staff review the care we provide, at UI Hospitals and Clinics. We look for common
mistakes, and then we make changes to improve care. All staff is asked to
report patient safety concerns to the Safety Oversight Team.
How Can You Help?
family members are an important part of the health care team. Please speak up if you have a question or
concern about something. You should know what your health problem is, and how
it will be treated.
Other ways to
be active in your care include:
- Ask people to clean their hands before touching
- Tell your family or friends to not visit you if
they are sick
- Keep a list of all the medicines and vitamins
you are taking
