The Patient Safety Movement Foundation (PSMF) announces its third annual contest to win a fishing trip with former President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter. The top two healthcare institutions that commit to save the highest number of lives through commitments to implementing processes, such as the Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS), by August 1, 2017 will be selected to go on this exclusive fishing trip with President Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter.
For the third year in a row, President and Mrs. Carter are helping the Patient Safety Movement to achieve its goal of ZERO preventable patient deaths by encouraging healthcare institutions to make commitments to saving the greatest number of lives with this annual contest and prize.
“The word has gotten out on this amazing trip and each year we see a considerable increase on the number of healthcare organizations that participate…2017 will be no exception. The biggest winners of course are the patients and staff of those hospitals that commit to zero. We are very excited to once again partner with the Carters for this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Over the years, we have learned so much from President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn. Their willingness to continue providing this opportunity to healthcare organizations around the world year after year speaks volumes of their commitment to help humanity,” said Joe Kiani, Founder of the Patient Safety Movement Foundation.
