Central Michigan Life: College of Medicine Conference Promotes Patient Safety to Current and Future Professionals

Posted on October 05, 2017

Sam Watson, senior vice president of patient safety and quality at the MHA, took part in an educational conference hosted by Central Michigan University's College of Medicine Oct. 4. According to an article in Central Michigan Life, present and future healthcare providers were urged to expand patient safety measurements during the presentations. During the conference, "Safety Issues in Healthcare: Patients and Providers at Risk," speakers laid out the imperative mission of healthcare professionals to reduce error in patient treatment.

Watson said expanding precaution and annihilating error begin with setting the message in all medical trainees and personnel. He went on to say nurses, physicians, pharmacists and any members of the health team must have a built in standard on avoiding mistakes in their profession.

"(It starts with) building safety as an expectation of what you do as part of the education. Doing it together instead of alone as medical school (and) nursing school (students)," Watson said.
