The Patient’s Hospital Safety Guide app contains life-saving information that everyone should have on their phone in case they, a family member or friend, end up in the hospital.
Why this App is Needed
Medical errors in hospitals have increased since the pandemic. They happen at all hospitals every day, resulting in between 10,000 and 20,000 incidents of harm daily, and millions of injuries, many permanent, plus up to 440,000 deaths a year, many after discharge. But most people don’t realize they can be killed in a hospital by something that has nothing to do with the injury or illness they’re being treated for, or that it’s the 3rd leading cause of death and more than half of all cases occur during elective surgery or procedures.
Hospitals are often understaffed and their nurses overworked. That’s when errors happen. So patients need to do whatever they can to protect themselves.
How the Patient’s Hospital Safety Guide Can Help
The patient and their family or friends can use the information in this app to help them protect the patient from being harmed by a medical error. Many hospitals don’t allow the use of cellphones but an app can be used.

Easy to use and very valuable. A must for all hospital patients.
Years ago my family lost a loved one in the hospital due to carelessness on the part of the staff. Only three years old, this child was given an accidental overdose of anesthesia. If we had had this app and this information, possibly we could have avoided this tragedy. Especially in these times when hospitals are overly crowded, this advice is indispensable.
– Thankful in OK.
This app has all the information at your fingertips for the well-informed and proactive patient entering a confusing and complicated healthcare system. We all need to take responsibility for our healthcare outcomes and this app gives you some helpful tools.
This is a very informative document. It worked very well on my phone. It was responsive and quickly took me to good links. I was mainly reading the site for content and I was very pleased to learn a lot more than I bargained for! The way it was organized made it very easy to jump all around without getting lost. I found that as I read through the material I could follow links down rabbit holes but easily get back on track by returning to the index to link to the next topic.
I feel much better prepared to interact with a hospital.
