Patient Safety Star nominations sought

In honor of National Patient Safety Awareness Week, March 3 through 9, the MGH will sponsor its fourth annual Patient Safety Star Appreciation breakfast on March 6. “Safety Stars” exemplify the principle that all staff have the responsibility and opportunity to contribute to patient safety. 

Staff are invited to nominate a colleague in a clinical, administrative or support service role who has demonstrated particular excellence in patient safety. The deadline for nominations is 5 pm on Feb. 11. Nominations may be submitted online by accessing Select “Patient Safety Star Nomination Form” under the surveys tab on the left panel.

Employees may also fax the following information to Millie LeBlanc, RN, patient safety specialist, at (617) 726-4304: the nominee’s name, department and mailstop, as well as his or her immediate supervisor’s name and at least one example of the nominee’s contribution to patient safety at the MGH.
