Hospital Safety & Security Seminar
September 26th-27th, 2019
When your hospital accepts a patient, you not only take on the responsibility for treating them, you also accept the responsibility for their safety and security while they are in your care. A recent study by Leap Frog identified four major concerns for patients and family members when being admitted into the hospital.
·         Fear of the diagnoses
·         Not having time with the health care providers (physicians and nurses)
·         Being given the wrong medication
·         Having the wrong procedure performed
This Hospital Safety and Security seminar is a comprehensive two-day program designed to provide the administrator/safety/security personnel with the knowledge and skills needed to implement (or revise) an effective safety and security program. Topics covered (but not limited to):
·         Safe & Secure Hospital (patients, healthcare workers, violence, infant abductions; responsibilities; domains of health care quality, hospital hospitality)
