March 4-10, 2012
Miami, Florida. March 4, 2012. CorePlus, an international specialty pathology laboratory, is pleased to join you in a renewal of our ongoing commitment to patient safety by recognizing Patient Safety Awareness Week (March 4-10, 2012). The theme this year is Be Aware for Safe Care.
CorePlus has been pioneer in applying the most current standards in patient safety in care for over 15 years. 'We were one of the first pathology laboratories to utilize bar-coded requisitions, bar-coded slides, bar-coded cassettes, workstation scanners and single specimen workflow to provide True Positive Identification (TPID) from the point of specimen collection in the physician office through archive storage' said Nancy Ramos, CT (ASCP), Director of Clinical Services.
CorePlus has invested heavily in anatomic pathology workflow management and technology to improve quality and reduce the potential for medical errors.
Since 2002, NPSF has led health care organizations around the world in recognizing Patient Safety Awareness Week, a campaign for education and consciousness-raising to improve patient safety at the local level. This years theme, Be Aware for Safe Care, calls for all parties in the health care equation to be aware of ongoing efforts to improve patient safety and how they can take part in advancing them.
