Patient safety is defined as the pursuit of the reduction and mitigation of unsafe acts within the healthcare system, as well as the use of best practices shown to lead to optimal patient outcomes. Everyone involved in patient safety, including patients, their families, and healthcare professionals, need to be aware of patient safety issues, mitigation strategies, and best practices for ensuring safety for everyone.
