What is the Purpose of the National Patient Safety Goals?

The National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) was created in 2002 to address specific areas in patient safety

Every year a panel of safety experts, the Patient Safety Advisory Group, advises the Joint Commission on emerging issues in patient safety

  • The group consists of nurses, physicians, pharmacists, risk managers, and others with hands-on experience addressing patient safety issues in various health care settings

Using input from groups of practitioners, consumers, and organizations, the Joint Commission then decides which issues have the highest priority and set goals on how to solve them

  • The goals are tailored to specific accreditation programs

This course will focus on Hospital National Patient Safety Goals

Course Content Example 2:

Improve the Safety of Using Medications

  • Label and medication that is removed from its original packaging
  • Include medication name, strengthen, amount, diluent name and volume, and expiration date/time
  • Verify labels visually and verbally
