Speak Up: Preventing Surgical Errors


Speak Up: Preparing for Surgery

When your doctor recommends surgery, it can make you feel alone and afraid. Taking steps to be prepared will help you feel more in control.

Speak Up: Help Avoid Mistakes With Your Surgery

Mistakes can happen during surgery. Surgeons can do the wrong surgery. They can operate on the wrong part of your body. Or they can operate on the wrong person. Hospitals and other medical facilities that are accredited by The Joint Commission must follow a procedure that helps surgeons avoid these mistakes.
