See the Change
You may have lost someone you loved or know someone who has. If that is the case, we would like to express our deepest sympathy.
We can’t explain why a place of healing became a cause of tragedy. What we can do is much more modest: extend an invitation to you to join patient advocates, mothers and fathers, wives and husbands, and sons and daughters who are working passionately towards a single goal – ZERO preventable deaths by 2020.
If you’re ready to Join the Movement, we will welcome you – with gratitude and appreciation. Your story and donation will become an integral part of the narrative driving the Patient Safety Movement forward.
Visit our resource page to educate yourself or a loved one during a hospital visit. Many of these resources were developed by patients, for patients.
Challenges and Solutions
After extensive research and input from doctors, nurses, healthcare technologists, and patient-safety specialists, the leaders of the Patient Safety Movement drafted and published detailed solutions for common causes of preventable patient death. We call these Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS). Hospitals committed to the Movement have agreed to implement at least one of these APSS or another proven solution at their institution. It’s just one of the collaborative steps we’re taking towards our common goal.
