Commitment to Patient Safety

Creating a safe environment is a top priority by all stakeholders who influence patient care delivery at all Tift Regional Health System (TRHS) facilities. Our goal is to foster sharing of knowledge and information about optimal patient safety practices and models; to identify causes and influence change in systems to prevent errors and accidents; and to convene hospital medical staff and employees for ongoing dialogue in support of patient safety improvements.

Patient Safety
Each patient is responsible for notifying the facility or clinic of suggestions to improve patient safety, perceived risks in his/her care and unexpected changes in patient’s condition. TRHS’s goal is to provide a safe environment for our patients and families. If you have a safety concern, it can be reported to The Joint Commission:

ONLINE: go to www.jointcommission.org and use the “Submit a New Concern” link

FAX: send to 630-792-5636

MAIL: send to Office of Quality and Patient Safety, The Joint Commission, One Renaissance Boulevard, Oakbrook Terrace, IL 60181

Seguridad del paciente

Si usted tiene una preocupación de seguridad, puede ser reportada a La Comisión Conjunta:
