September 2003 AAOS Report
AAOS calls for best patient safety tips
The AAOS is calling for entries for its first-ever Best Patient Safety Tip Contest. All those associated with the orthopaedic industry-including residents, Academy members, orthopaedic administrators, orthopaedic nurses and allied health care workers-are invited to submit their original patient safety tips. Tips may be for doctors, nurses, health care staff and/or patients and their families. They may relate to the hospital, physician's office or home health care experience.
The Best Tip as well as the "Top 10 Patient Safety Tips" will be recognized during the Opening Ceremony of the 2004 Annual Meeting. Entries will be evaluated by the Patient Safety Committee. Entry forms can be submitted online or downloaded from www.patientsafety.aaos.org and faxed to (847) 823-7268.
