Patient Safety Week Presentation on Infections and Serious Reportable Events

Patient Safety Awareness Week begins March 5. HCFA and the Consumer Health Quality Council are marking the week in two ways – a blog each day written by an expert in the field of patient safety and an event at the State House focusing on the recently-released public reports on infections and Serious Reportable Events.

The State House event is Tuesday, March 6, 9:30-10:30, in Members Lounge. Speakers will include three legislative champions for patient safety, Senator Richard Moore, Representative Jeffrey Sanchez, and Representative Denise Provost; Dr. Madeleine Biondolillo, Director, and Iyah Romm, Special Assistant to the Director, from the Department of Public Health’s Bureau of Health Care Safety and Quality; Dalia Al-Othman, member of HCFA’s Consumer Council; Nicola Truppin, President of the Consumer Council; and Amy Whitcomb Slemmer, HCFA’s Executive Director. The event is open to the public. A light breakfast will be provided. Contact Kaitlyn Rhodes at krhodes@hcfama.org with any questions. Check out our earlier post to familiarize yourself with the infection and SRE reports.
