Patient safety is a priority at Emanuel Medical Center.
Our Patient Safety Program is a hospital-wide initiative that applies to all departments and services at Emanuel Medical Center and is designed to ensure safety for our patients at all times.
Patient-safety procedures include everything from hand-washing to multiple checks of your identity and condition before surgery. If at any time you have a safety concern or question, ask any of our staff members or hospital administrators.
"Speak Up" is a program sponsored by The Joint Commission (the largest health-care accrediting organization in the United States) to encourage patients to get involved in their care.
"Speak Up" provides simple advice to patients to help them take an active role in decisions about their healthcare. Research shows such patients are likely to have better outcomes.
