Top Safety Concerns for Patients


by Roberta Carson, Zaggo, on April 9, 2018

Each year ECRI Institute* creates a list of the 10 top patient safety concerns to support healthcare organizations in their efforts to proactively identify and respond to patient safety hazards. Patients and family caregivers can use this information to be better informed—knowing what hazards are lurking can help us avoid being a victim. Don’t ignore these top safety concerns for patients: your health, and even your life, may be at risk.
