PROTECTING…your safety and quality work

As a federally-designated Patient Safety Organization (PSO), the Center for Patient Safety supports and encourages health care providers to share information about vulnerabilities in the health care system that can lead to medical mistakes and patient harm. By learning what adverse events occur, why they occur and how to prevent them, as well as sharing that learning, we support efforts to reduce medical mistakes and patient harm. The Centers’ PSO services offer a seamless way for licensed healthcare providers to work collaboratively to learn how to reduce serious events and patient harm within the federal confidentiality and privilege protections of the federal Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005.
