Supporting patient safety


As part of Patient Safety and Quality Week, staff, visitors and patients were asked to identify potential hazards in this mock patient room that could lead to clinical errors.

In March, UF Health faculty, staff and students gathered at UF Health facilities to celebrate Patient Safety and Quality Week, presented by the UF Health Sebastian Ferrero Office of Clinical Quality and Patient Safety. Activities focused on reinforcing safe practices and awareness among staff. Events included patient safety displays, a poster session featuring more than 70 quality initiatives, a virtual scavenger hunt and dynamic keynote speaker Colleen Sweeney, R.N., B.S.
