Patient Safety and Risk Management
Demonstrate your commitment to the Joint Commission Hospital National Patient Safety Goals and get your patients involved.
The Patient Safety and Risk Management Collection empowers your patients to take an active role in their own care — in preventing complications, errors, accidents, and infections. This continually expanding series is designed to meet the needs of hospitals and the increasing requirements for patient education from the federal government and the Joint Commission. It covers patient safety, discharge education, and patients’ rights and responsibilities. Patient safety officers, risk managers, patient educators, and clinicians will find these videos especially valuable. Videos can be shown on a DVD player, over your hospital TV system, or integrated into your website or other hospital patient platform.
Patient education helps minimize complications and reduce readmissions
A recent study by the Office of the Inspector General found that 13% of hospitalized Medicare beneficiaries experience adverse events resulting in prolonged hospital stay, permanent harm, life-sustaining intervention, or death. Almost half of those events are considered preventable.
