Patient safety is very important at Metro Health. One of the ways Metro Health improves the safety of the healthcare it delivers is compliance with the National Patient Safety Goals. National Patient Safety Goals were developed by a team of patient safety experts, nurses, physicians, pharmacists, risk managers and others with experience addressing patient safety issues. Each year, new goals are identified through literature and data base reviews. Input on potential new goals is obtained from practitioners, purchasers, consumer groups and others before their adoption and implementation by the Joint Commission. Click here for details.
