Celebrating Patient Safety Week
Get Involved in Your Healthcare
Patient Safety Week
October 29 – November 2
 
October 22, 2012— At the end of the month and into November, Interlake Eastern Regional Health Authority's (IERHA's) patient safety coordinator, Heather Campbell, will be travelling to sites in communities across the region to increase awareness about the role each and every one of of us play in contributing to patient safety in health care facilities.
 
Prior to her arrival at the IERHA, Campbell was a pediatric nurse at Winnipeg's Children's Hospital and in Edinburgh, Scotland. In her new role, she ensures that the region is addressing patient safety initiatives with IEHRA staff and communities.
 
Campbell will hand out medication cards and help people fill them in. She also has Emergency Response Information Kits (ERIK) for people to record key health information and post on the fridge or another visible area for health care providers in the event of an emergency. Campbell wants to ensure that people know about the tools available to them that will help manage experiences within the health care system.
