ABOUT PEOPLE FOR PATIENT SAFETY -PPS-

PPS was founded in 2014 as a way for health care professionals, caregivers and community members to share helpful information about patient safety.  Participants learn from each other what has worked for others and ways to become more knowledgable about safe care and best practices.

PPS is not about your health and there is no medical advice offered.  PPS is about health care which is the journey to the best health outcomes, often missed in caring for patients.
