AimWhen patients are admitted to Providence Health Care’s acute units, they receive a brochure that provides information on how they can participate in their care decisions, and stay safer while admitted. The aim of this initiative is to update St. Paul’s Hospital’s Patient Safety Brochure so that it meets Accreditation standards as well as aligns with the values of PHC; if we want to continuously improve patient safety we need to work closer than ever with and alongside patients.

The promise to you is that the health care partner will involve patients in planning and design phases to ensure ideas or concerns are considered and reflected in alternatives and recommendations.
