Patient Safety Organizations were created to facilitate the
collection and analysis of incident data as a means to identify
and create better ways of delivering quality care to
patients. However, PSOs will only be successful in this
mission if they have active engagement and participation from
their member hospitals.
Interested counsel may join a discussion group that offers
support and an opportunity to learn about the new legal
privileges and challenges of the Patient Safety and Quality
Improvement Act of 2005. You can request to join the
group by following this link: eepurl.com/rKJaf. This group
generally holds conference calls quarterly.
