Patient Safety Week (14th - 18th March 2016)

The Patient Safety Awareness week consisted of 3 days of multi-disciplinary presentations where the speakers demonstrated how they ensure the safety of their patients in their department.


Each day also included an interactive acting sketch where our participants presented various patient care processes, where the audience was encouraged to point out the errors that were displayed.


Moreover, throughout the week, Patient Safety Awareness badges were distributed to all hospital staff, and educational awareness banners were displayed in various points of the hospital.
