It saw the publishing of arguably America’s greatest novel (In Cold Blood, Truman Capote), the passing of one of the most recognizable names in recent history (Walt Disney) and a revolution in health care (creation of Medicare). It saw Miranda rights and the deciphering of DNA. Yet, these are not the only historical remembrances of 1966.

Speak Up: Preventing Medical Errors

Read More
 
New campaign video, podcast, and Infographic - Speak UP: Right ID, Right Care - When you’re in the hospital, nurses are supposed to use “patient identifiers”, this ensures the right patient gets the right kind of care, in the right place, and at the right time. This may include asking your name, birthday, checking your wristband and maybe even your phone number. Hospitals are busy places, there may be other patients that look like you or have similar names. Make sure you are being identified correctly, if you are concerned, always Speak UP!
