Every year, UF Health celebrates Patient Safety and Quality Week to reinforce quality care and safety practices. The week, which occurred March 9-13, featured a series of fun, educational and interactive activities that helped to raise awareness among UF Health faculty and staff about patient safety and quality issues. Participants tested their patient safety knowledge in a “problem”
patient room constructed in the UF Health Shands Hospital Atrium, competed in an online scavenger hunt and learned about quality endeavors at a poster session that featured more than 70 initiatives. National speaker and quality expert Colleen Sweeney, R.N., shared three compelling presentations about the patient experience and how to create a culture of caring. Activities focused on engaging faculty and staff, and hospital visitors and patients also participated to learn how we are making quality Job 1 at UF Health.
