Patient safety
Hospital patient safety is a critical aspect of healthcare which aims to prevent harm, and to promote the well-being of patients during their hospital visits or stay. 

It involves implementing various protocols, procedures, and initiatives to reduce the risk of medical errors, infections, falls, and other adverse events.

Patient safety practices include proper hand hygiene, medication reconciliation, accurate identification of patients, and effective communication among healthcare providers.

Hospitals establish safety committees and utilize advanced technologies to monitor and improve patient safety, such as electronic health records and barcode medication administration systems.
