WORLD PATIENT SAFETY DAY 2022: The COVID-19 pandemic has reminded all of us of the vital role the healthcare system plays to relieve suffering and ensuring public safety. Hospitals are without a doubt the safest place to obtain treatment for any medical issue, hence it is imperative for these institutions to offer top-notch healthcare facilities. World Patient Safety Day (WPS) is observed on September 17, every year.
The goal of WPS Day is to raise public awareness and engagement, enhance global understanding, and work towards global solidarity to promote patient safety. According to a WHO report, unreliable medical procedures impact one in ten patients worldwide. Therefore, the hospitals should demonstrate support and commitment to resolve and address these concerns and prioritize patient safety.
