This year, Joint Commission Resources (JCR) decided to honor Patient Safety Awareness Week, March 4 through March 10, by offering free articles, tips, and tools from JCR each day.

It says it applauds your efforts for ongoing attention to improvements in patient safety and quality. Have you taken advantage of any of JCR’s offerings? Is this week important to your department and your hospital?

What is your facility doing to raise awareness? We welcome your ideas.
