Patient Safety Information for the Public
Patient safety starts with you. The patient, or caregiver of the patient, is as responsible for their own well being as the health professionals that are treating you. This portion of the Patient Safety website provides you with resources of information that will help you understand how to protect yourself in a variety of health care settings.
