Hospitals are busy, complex environments and, too often, we become unwitting accomplices to infection and injury.
IHA works to engage and inspire health care professionals to create new safe cultures and reliable systems of care to prevent harm to patients. We are working with regional and national leaders in patient safety to develop strategies and tools to reduce health care-related harm.
Broad-scale improvement depends on the steady spread of good ideas, consistent and widespread communication and reliable application of evidence-based practices. Participate in your local patient safety coalition and join the IHA Quality & Patient Safety Council to become part of this important conversation.
