Patient Safety Authority Issues Annual Report for 2007
Date:4/30/2008

rom the "lessons learned." Several of Pennsylvania's Patient Safety Officers have commented on the usefulness of Patient Safety Advisories, and understand the importance of sharing the information with staff. Examples appear below.

The PSA has provided our organization with valuable information through their Advisory publications. They are widely distributed and used throughout our Health System. The Authority has also done a great deal to advance consistency in reporting of information, as well as insight into the frequency of safety Incidents and Serious Events as a whole. With the open discussion at our Patient Safety Committee meetings, many topics once "hidden" are now seeing the light of day. I believe we are a more well-informed organization - with heightened awareness of the events affecting us in our delivery of health care.

Joan Silver, BSW, RN, MS, CPHQ

Vice President, Organizational Quality

Pinnacle Health System

The Patient Safety Authority has greatly elevated our awareness of patient safety in our hospital. The Patient Safety Advisories, in particular, are a useful resource tool. The information is disseminated to the appropriate department managers and process improvements have been implemented as a result of the Authorities recommendations. We continue to strive to make safety a priority every day in everything we do at Reading Hospital.

Roseann Castanaro

Risk Manager/Patient Safety Officer

Reading Hospital & Medical Center

We have found the Patient Safety Advisories beneficial and we share them with the management staff and the physicians (Patient Safety Committee) to share the knowledge gleaned from the Advisories. Statewide trends are beneficial - seeing value come from our work is beneficial, we just don't enter data - we see feedback as a result of all facilities participating.
