The CT Center for Patient Safety is a forceful voice for the health care consumer. Our health care system is not really a system; rather the “system” is a collection of industries that have bottom lines and whose profits can be at the expense of the patient. Read more
Patient Safety is about the systems that must be put in place to assure quality of care for everyone. We believe quality healthcare is a right.
The CT Center for Patient Safety represents the voice of patients in the following areas:
- Patient Safety Campaigns; including hospital infections, medical errors, pharmaceutical reporting, and malpractice reform.
- State legislative health policy
- National patient safety and quality organizations
- State and National agencies and officials
- Patient Safety Education
The CT Center for Patient Safety is looking for volunteers to join us in fulfilling our mission to advance high quality, safe health care, and to protect the rights of patients. We do this by educating, empowering and working with patients, clinicians, students of the health sciences and community members. Email us at Lisa.Freeman@CTCPS.org or call us at 203 610-0610 to discuss your interest or to learn more about our available opportunities.
