The Department of Clinical Effectiveness and Patient Safety represents the commitment of
health care professionals and staff working together with one common
goal: creating the safest hospital in Connecticut.
Nationwide, patients are statistically at higher risk of injury or
illness from medication errors, hospital-acquired infections, pain
management treatments, and falls. At John Dempsey, our health
professionals are committed to delivering the highest quality of care in
the safest way possible.
Patients who are involved with their care while in the hospital tend
to do better and stay safer. By working together with your health care
team, you can lower your risk of injury and make your hospital stay as
safe as possible.
