Arcadia, CA (PRWEB) January 5, 2010
The Posey Company, a leader in the design and manufacture of innovative and reliable patient safety solutions, today announced it has joined the Corporate Council at the National Patient Safety Foundation® (NPSF), an organization committed to improving the safety and quality of the healthcare system.
Of increasing importance in the United States and abroad is the adoption of protocols and programs to reduce patient injury due to unnecessary falls, especially in-hospital, and with the least restriction possible. The Posey Company stands on a long history of delivering solutions that aid in both acute and long-term patient care while maintaining patient safety.
Whether in hospital or at an extended-care facility, the Posey mission singularly focuses on upholding patient quality of care and peace of mind. For patients who are disoriented or debilitated, the Posey StaySafe™ Bed, for example, offers a secure, reliable, and managed environment for both the patient and caregiver. Posey products have become vital components of systems designed around patient protection.
NPSF develops transformative programs and initiatives designed to accelerate and drive positive change in order to achieve safer patient care. The Corporate Council program at NPSF provides a forum for solutions providers to work with healthcare providers, hospital executives, and patient and family representatives in facilitating implementation of vital patient safety measures. The Posey Company joins a diverse group of solutions providers on the Corporate Council, each with a unique perspective to further the patient safety mission.
Upon joining the Corporate Council, Posey Company CEO and President Ernie Posey said, “We at the Posey Company enthusiastically champion industry efforts to come together for the sake of patient care improvement. Ultimately, through our participation on the National Patient Safety Foundation Corporate Council, we hope to help improve patient outcomes in as many ways and as many times as possible.”
“I am thrilled to welcome the Posey Company to the Corporate Council at NPSF,” said Diane Pinakiewicz, NPSF president. “This alignment of interests provides both our organizations with remarkable opportunities for learning and generating the ideas for change under our shared goal of improving healthcare.”
