Patient Safety Goals

Each year, national goals are established to address specific areas of concern in regards to patient safety by The Joint Commission, a not-for-profit organization that accredits more than 17,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. The University of Tennessee Medical Center takes these National Safety Goals seriously and works to ensure a safe environment throughout your hospital stay and for all aspects of your care.

You will find a detailed description of each of the National Patient Safety Goals on The Joint Commission Website.
