Patient Safety

At UPMC, safety is at the heart of how we provide quality care you can rely on. We take each step possible to assure your safety — and the safety of your family and friends while you're in our care.

We also know that the more people involved, the better the results. This includes each UPMC health care team member and you. When we work as a team, we make steady progress toward our goal of zero errors.
