Who in the Health Cares? Patient Safety Week-March 3-8, 2008
Date:2/26/2008

CHICAGO, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Continuing its efforts to educate, inform, and empower the people of Chicago, SAVE THE PATIENT, a not-for-profit patient-focused organization, is hosting its 25-minute live call-in show, "Community Health," on Chicago Access Network (CAN-TV) on Monday, March 3, at 6:00 PM on Channel 21.

Monday's program will feature a frank discussion on what is currently being done, or not done, when it comes to patient safety, and most importantly, how to protect yourself and your family from hospital- and community-based infections. Find out about the Illinois Health Report Card, sponsored by Senator Barack Obama and the General Assembly.

All the efforts of SAVE THE PATIENT promote positive and productive interactions between patients and medical professionals by encouraging individuals to know and implement their rights to ask questions, receive understandable answers, and explore medical options. "SAVE THE PATIENT's mission is to assist the public in becoming better health care consumers," notes president and founder Lenore Janecek.

Viewers who wish to join the discussion can call in to pose questions or share concerns. "This new televised platform gives Chicago's diverse population a voice in matters affecting their use of health care," explains Janecek. "The open discussion format is designed to help mend the disparity between the wealth of health care resources available and the dearth of people who are actually aware of them." Ms. Janecek, a nationally known health care expert and author, is the host of this groundbreaking program.

Check your local cable television listings for scheduled air times. For additional information, call CAN-TV at 312-738-1400 or e-mail savethepatient@aol.com.

SAVE THE PATIENT(SM) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the support and education of individuals on health care matters. Founded in 2001 to fulfill the need for a non-biased, non-commercial
