Overview *

Patient safety is one of most pressing health care challenges. Across the world, many patients die because of medical errors. Many safety measures are taken to help reduce these errors.

There are things you can do to help yourself get safer health care. Some are as simple as making sure that when you are in the hospital your wristband has the right name on it.

Other ways to reduce risks are:
Ask questions if you have doubts or concerns. Take a relative or friend to help you ask questions and understand answers
Make sure you understand what will happen if you need surgery
Tell your health care providers about all the medicines you take, including over-the-counter drugs and dietary supplements, and any allergies or bad reactions to anesthesia. Make sure you know how to take your medications correctly.
Get a second opinion about treatment options
Keep a copy of your own health history
