Today, September 17th, Med-Ez are joining the global healthcare community in celebrating World Patient Safety Day! Recognition of the day came to be in 2019 following the adoption of resolution WHA72.6 for ‘global action on patient safety’. The premise of the day is deeply grounded in the most fundamental principle of medicine: first, do no harm.
With the Covid pandemic placing a greater focus and appreciation for our healthcare systems, this year’s celebration is more important than ever. The objectives of World Patient Safety Day are to:
Raise worldwide understandings around patient safety
Increase public engagement in the safety of healthcare - for both health workers and patients!
Promote global actions that enhance patient safety and reduce patient harm
This celebration is special to Med-Ez, as our company was established out of the aspiration to help patients receive quality care, at more affordable prices, without having to sacrifice safety. Patient safety is fundamental to our business, so on this day we would like to remind you of the ways Med-Ez seeks to protect you.
