09 Mar

Patient Safety Awareness Week officially kicked off March 8 this year and is celebrated through March 14, but should remain a focus year-round. Most relate this week of recognition to slip-and-falls, but patient safety can also be directly affected by the uniforms worn by healthcare employees.
