The COVID-19 pandemic has unveiled the huge challenges and risks health workers are facing globally including health care associated infections, violence, stigma, psychological and emotional disturbances, illness and even death. Furthermore, working in stressful environments makes health workers more prone to errors which can lead to patient harm. Therefore, on World Patient Safety Day 2020:
Theme: Health Worker Safety: A Priority for Patient Safety
Slogan: Safe health workers, Safe patients
Call for action: Speak up for health worker safety!
