Join ABQAURP as we "Speak Up for Health Worker Safety"!
Today is #WorldPatientSafetyDay – the World Health Organization’s (WHO) established day of awareness and action for patient safety.

This year, we stand up to make “Health Worker Safety: A Priority for Patient Safety”.

The COVID-19 pandemic has unveiled the huge challenges and risks health workers are facing globally including health care associated infections, violence, stigma, psychological and emotional disturbances, illness and even death. Furthermore, working in stressful environments makes health workers more prone to errors which can lead to patient harm.
