Patient Safety Day -- July 25th

Our friend, John McCormack, passed this along...

National, World, Global Patient Safety Day

Remembering patients and families who have lost their life (or quality of life) due to medical errors -
and in tribute to those who work to improve the safety and quality of healthcare for future patients."Together, lighting the path to safe healthcare - today and everyday:
safe, high quality healthcare is neither accidental nor static."

Time: Moment of Silence at Noon and 6 p.m. your timezone
There will be a meeting in Boston in front of the statehouse this Saturday, July 25th, at 11 am for a moment of silence remembering those who have been harmed by medical error.

MITSS clinicians and other members,

We are grateful to you for helping others learn about World Patient Safety Day and giving them the opportunity to be a part of the Candlelight Moment of Silence and Hope on July 25th (in their home, at work or at an event).

Thank you,
