Encision Supports National Patient Safety Awareness Week

BOULDER, Colo., Feb. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The National Patient Safety Foundation's theme this year, "Patient Safety -- A Road Taken Together," stresses the importance of improving healthcare as a joint effort of hospitals, healthcare providers, patients, and communities.

Supporting National Patient Safety Awareness Week, March 2-8, 2008, medical device manufacturer Encision Inc. (Amex: ECI) urges communities to actively partner with local hospitals to promote patient safety.

In recent months the announcement that Medicare, Aetna and Blue Cross may not pay for certain types of preventable hospital mistakes has served as a wake up call to the healthcare industry. Hospitals are proactively working to eliminate preventable complications that should never occur. An estimated 15 million incidents of medical harm occur in U.S. hospitals each year according to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement.

"Our Company's top priority is to work alongside hospitals, doctors, patients and professional associations to reduce the risk of medical harm during surgery and significantly improve patient safety," said Encision CEO Jack Serino.
