"The Patient Safety Tip of the Week has been very valuable to me in my role as Patient Safety Coordinator" said Donna Mohling RN, BSN, Patient Safety Coordinator at the MediCorp Health System in Fredericksburg, Virginia. "As I began a new role in patient safety, this website has provided great insight into the latest concerns for patient safety and tools to utilize in promoting safety. Recently, I received a tip of the week with the latest sentinel event alert and would not have been aware of the alert as soon as I was without this tip. Thanks for the education that you provide on the current happenings in Patient Safety."

Its numerous links take you right to the relevant literature on each topic. It's makes great use of the Internet.
