Doug Bonacum and Suzanne Graham Ask ‘Are You In?’ and Committed to Patient Safety?
In this year’s podcast, Doug Bonacum, vice president of Safety Management at Kaiser Permanente, and Suzanne Graham, executive director of Patient Safety, California Regions, speak about how patients can get involved, informed and invested in their commitment to safe health care.
Every year the National Patient Safety Foundation leads hospitals and health care organizations around the world in demonstrating their commitment to patient safety by celebrating Patient Safety Awareness Week. This year’s theme for Patient Safety Awareness Week is, “Involved. Informed. Invested. Are you in? Commit to safe health care.”
PATIENT SAFETY PODCASTS
Visibility, awareness and participation, at all levels of the health care system and within communities, are critical to improving patient safety. This is the perfect time to engage patients and their families, reenergize staff and demonstrate Kaiser Permanente’s collective commitment to patient safety.
