Gov. Hutchinson Declares March 12 - 18
Patient Safety Awareness Week in Arkansas
Little Rock, Ark. (March 2, 2017) - Gov. Asa Hutchinson issued a proclamation declaring March 12 – 18, 2017 Patient Safety Awareness Week in Arkansas. In the proclamation, Gov. Hutchinson avowed that “patient safety is central to top-quality healthcare in our nation and our state, and increased improvement in patient safety can be achieved by promoting the widespread sharing of best practices within the healthcare industry, as well as by continuous communication between patients and caregivers.”
In addition, the Governor acknowledged the 44 Arkansas healthcare facilities, including Delta Memorial Hospital, who are “actively working to significantly increase near miss reporting, reveal process and system vulnerabilities, and develop proactive data-driven improvement activities through participation in American Data Network Patient Safety Organization’s 2017 Good Catch Campaign, which aims to foster a growing culture of safety in hospitals by encouraging the recognition and reporting of patient safety risk before harm happens.”
The event coincides with National Patient Safety Awareness Week, which marks the culmination of the National Patient Safety Foundation’s year-long campaign, United for Patient Safety.
NPSF’s United for Patient Safety initiative aims to establish the fact that everyone in the healthcare process plays a role in delivering safe care — from patients and frontline staff to administrators in the executive suite and from patient and family advocates to corporate solutions providers. NPSF strives also to affirm the importance of the relationship between providers and patients and to demonstrate how increased communication and engagement can lead to safer care.
