International Patient Safety Day

On the occasion of the first World Patient Safety Day on 17 September 2019.

The World Health Organization (WHO) launches a worldwide campaign to raise awareness of patient safety and wish people to show their assurance to making health care safer.

Complex, multi-layered health care systems are some time away from patient safety concerns.

Thus, the International Patient Safety Day observed on September 17th reminds us that patient safety is all we have. All relevant stakeholders in our health care process

– patients, doctors, managers – must work together to ensure the safe delivery of health care. Finally, building a     culture of safety at all levels of the health care system.

How to Celebrate International Patient Safety Day:

Talk to the doctor. or doctor talk to you

Doctor visits can be intimidating and doctors are not always the best communicators.

Have an open conversation with your doctor about how you feel.

This is an issue you can’t talk about much.

Read the drug label:

Disorders in delivering and taking medications are a major component of deficiencies in patient safety.

Make sure you read the labels on your medication to take the correct dose, and don’t be afraid to chat with your pharmacist about any questions related to your prescriptions.

Contribute to your own safety:

Read on for best practices to maintain good health and ensure that your visit to a doctor or hospital is as safe as possible. World Health Organizations provide resources on its website.

Ways to increase your patient safety


Make sure that anyone involved in providing medical care is aware of your allergies.

Be prepared:

Do not show up at the doctor’s office or hospital; Think about what you want to know and learn in advance.

Do your own research:

Doctors know a lot, but there is no harm in digging yourself into facts about any given situation.

Why is International Patient Safety Day important?

This is a considerable problem

According to the World Health Organization, harm to patients worldwide causes tuberculosis, and one in every 10 hospital patients will be harmed in some way during a hospital visit.

Damage is expensive:

Nearly 15 percent of all health care costs are wasted when dealing with incidents that do not keep patients safe. Focusing on patient safety reduces health care costs and makes health care delivery more efficient.

Administrative flaws are prevalent:

There is a lot of paperwork involved in providing health care. More than other problems, administrative deficiencies contribute to a lack of patient safety.

International Patient Safety Day is a reminder not only for patients, but for health care administrators who focus on patient safety.


International Patient Safety Day held on 17th September every year. Health is wealth.

Create better society for humans.

It is an information and awareness purpose only.

Thank You.
