This week, March 4-10, marks the National Patient Safety Foundation’s annual Patient Safety Awareness week. For the past ten years, NPSF has led health care organizations to recognize the importance of patient safety by raising awareness and encouraging both healthcare providers and patients to become more educated.

This year’s theme, Be Aware for Safe Care, urges healthcare providers and patients to take notice of ongoing efforts to improve patient safety and to participate in the advancement of those efforts.

Hospital Corporation of America used social media to spread awareness by sharing this infographic, showing five ways patients and healthcare providers can establish safe care.

What will you do to raise awareness for patient safety at your practice?
