World Patient Safety Day


World Patient Safety Day, observed annually on 17 September, aims to raise global awareness about patient safety to reduce patient harm.

Patient safety focuses on preventing and reducing risks, errors, and harm that happen to patients during the provision of health care.

Every minute, 5 patients die because of unsafe care. No one should be harmed in health care and yet, every day, thousands of patients suffer avoidable harm while receiving care. Patient safety is a crucial part of responsible healthcare services to prevent medical errors that often lead to adverse Healthcare.

"Know your rights as a patient, you are guaranteed safety at the health facility."

Without safety, there is no health care.
