Patient Safety Week
Patient Safety Awareness Week – March 11-17, 2018
The United for Patient Safety campaign culminates each year with Patient Safety Awareness Week, designed to mark a dedicated time and platform to increase awareness about patient safety among health professionals and the public. Athletico’s goal during this week is to unite and engage physical therapists and patients to help spread this important message.
Maintaining a safe environment while ensuring quality care to all of our patients is at the core of what Athletico employees do every day. Our employees prioritize safety in the clinic setting by being aware of patients’ surroundings, taking precautions to reduce falls, eliminating distractions and utilizing effective communication.
That being said, we all have a role to play in patient safety. As a consumer in the health care system, your voice matters. Lend your support and engage with the United for Patient Safety campaign and Patient Safety Awareness Week by sharing your story on Facebook and Twitter. Be sure to use the campaign hashtag #PSAW18 and tag @Athletico.
