Help Prevent Errors in Your Care.
The Joint Commission program "Speak Up"
Everyone has a role in making health care safe. That includes doctors, health care executives, nurses and many health care technicians. Health care organizations across the country are working to make health care safe. As a patient, you can make your care safer by being an active, involved and informed member of your health care team. Research shows that patients who take part in decisions about their own health care are more likely to get better faster. To help prevent health care mistakes, patients are urged to "Speak Up."
