Betsy Lehman Center Annual Patient Safety Award

The Betsy Lehman Center for Patient Safety and Medical Error Reduction was founded in January 2004 with the goal of reducing medical errors and improving patient safety in Massachusetts. The Center is named in memory of Betsy Lehman, a Boston Globe reporter who died after receiving a massive overdose of chemotherapy.

In 2005, the Center started the Patient Safety Award program to recognize innovative and effective patient safety work taking place in the Commonwealth. Nominations for the 2010 award are being accepted through December 1. The focus of this year’s award is on organizations or individuals doing work to improve care transitions or care coordination. To learn more about the award and past awardees, and to access the nomination form, please visit the Center’s website.
