Patient Safety
Overview

The Quality and Risk Department supports programs and initiatives that have been developed with the goal of reducing patient injuries and deaths that are preventable in our region.  Safe patient care will be provided in a culture of trust, compassion, integrity, respect and collaboration.

There are many initiatives in progress in our region to improve patient safety, deliver safer health care, and to improve communication between patients/families and their health care providers.
