BENEFITING: Physician-Patient Alliance for Health & Safety
Help us ensure patients are receiving the care they deserve! None of these patients went home from hospital. Yet, all had successful surgeries or were waiting to go home … but they never made it.
100% of the funds raised go directly towards PPAHS’s efforts: development of informative materials contribute to expenses incurred in presenting, administrative support (production of checklists, whitepapers, and other related needs).
“Use and adherence with standardized processes for eligible patients leads to better clinical outcomes. The PPAHS PCA checklist lays out essential steps to be taken to initiate patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) with a patient and to continue to assess that patient’s use of PCA. Following these steps will help to increase patient safety and save lives.”
