What’s New in the Patient Safety World

 

October 2009                Joint Commission Activities

 

The Joint Commission has issued a new sentinel event alert: “Leadership Committed to Safety” and has also formally issued the 2010 National Patient Safety Goals (NPSGs). There are no new NPSG’s for 2010 but several of the old ones have been converted to Standards, many have had revisions and clarifications, and others have parts that have now become fully implemented.
