Celebrate with CommWell Health Patient Safety Awareness Week (PSAW) from March 12th to 18th, 2023!
Started by the National Patient Safety Foundation, PSAW promotes the safety of patients and healthcare providers. As the burden of healthcare-associated infections is increasing, the Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) Program promotes a resilient public health and healthcare system to keep patients safe from infections commonly spread in healthcare settings.
Healthcare providers and staff prioritize and play a critical role in protecting patients from disease and infection. This includes:
Environmental cleaning and disinfection,
Disease reporting, and
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) source control.
