| November 30, 2016

The first link takes you to The Joint Commission website

You will notice that National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) are separated by type care provided. Choose the long term care link.

Choose one of the goals listed and list three ways you might be able to meet that goal.

The next link will take you to the “Speak Up” initiative.

Choose and view one of the videos. In a paragraph discuss your impression of the videos and if you think that they will improve patient outcomes.

A NSPG that is threaded into every health care setting is HAND HYGIENE.

Search and explore the Centers for Disease Control or the World Health Organization websites for hand washing/hand hygiene. Are you surprised at the volume of information? Provide a list of the reasons you think that people don’t wash their hands. How does hand washing relate to patient safety? What can be done to improve hand hygiene in patients and in providers?
