Patient Safety 

Patient Safety is a Priority at St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea

We work together to provide safe quality care to our patients. Patient safety is continually promoted, in areas such as:

  • Communication during handoff/transfer of patient care responsibility from one healthcare professional to another
  • Handwashing prior to and after all patient contact
  • Medication safety while in the Hospital and at home
  • Patient fall prevention
  • Patient identification prior to medication or procedures
  • Use of "time outs" to verify the right patient, right procedure, and right equipment and supplies before any invasive procedure
  • Elimination of error-prone abbreviations in the medical record
  • We monitor our use of safety practices to ensure we are consistent in the care and service provided to our patients. Please ask us if you would like more information.

Additional patient safety reference material is available at The National Patient Safety Foundation
