keeping patients safe

In providing the highest quality of care, it is our responsibility as care professionals to create an environment where we, and our patients and colleagues, are safe.

Our focus in Island Health is to achieve world-class quality and safety by basing our practices and processes on the best evidence available, and by sharing the knowledge and resources necessary to implement best practices in everyday care.

Whether you are prescribing medication, working to contain an outbreak or coming up against an ethical dilemma in a care situation, knowing what to do, who to call, or where to find the information you need is essential to helping you provide the highest quality, safest care possible.
