Patient Safety Awareness Week March 13-19

AHRQ--Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality: Advancing Excellence in Health Care

AHRQ is United for Patient Safety. Let’s keep the momentum going. Hospital-acquired conditions declined 17 percent from 2010 to 2014 saving 87,000 lives and nearly $20 billion in unnecessary costs. Everyone in the health care process plays a role in delivering safe care. AHRQ has created tools to help your facility reduce readmissions, hospital-acquired conditions—including infections—and improve health literacy, patient/family engagement, and boost quality performance. All of our tools are evidence-based and available at no charge. Check them out:
