DoM Blog

This is the first entry in the University of Arizona Department of Medicine’s Quality and Safety Blog. Part of my mission this year is to build “a safety culture” in the department, both on the academic side and via our clinical partners at Banner – University Medical Center, the Southern Arizona VA Health Care System (SAVHCS) and Tucson Medical Center (TMC). This is to help keep each of us aware of the possibility of medical errors and hospital-acquired conditions. Achieving this mindset is a first step toward error-free health care.
