Ensuring patient safety is a national priority, and everyone involved in the health care system has a role, including the patient. Patients have an important role in making their care experience safer by staying informed, speaking up, and becoming active and involved in their health care decisions.
Research shows that patients who take part in decisions about their health care are more likely to have better outcomes. The more information patients have about health care, the better they can make decisions about what is best for them.
Patients are encouraged to utilize the resources below to assist in ensuring their own safety. If you have any questions or would like more information, please be sure to talk to your pharmacist.
