Adverse Events Presentations

The Adverse Health Events Reporting Law provides health care consumers and providers with information on how well hospitals, community behavioral health hospitals, and outpatient surgical centers are doing at preventing adverse events. It’s important that people know about trends in adverse events, and what their role is in preventing them.  The presentations below provide information about the overall system, and about the role of consumers/patients in ensuring safe care.
