Unity Hospital Recognized for Patient Safety Efforts

Unity Hospital is one of 11 hospitals, and the only one in the Rochester area, to receive a 2010 Quality Award from the New York Chapter of the American College of Physicians (NYACP).

The prestigious award is given in recognition of the completion of Near Miss Patient Safety Training, which Unity completed by sponsoring educational training on medical errors, classifications of errors and common tools used to reduce these errors, and a review of reporting systems.

NYACP is the largest medical-specialty organization in New York State and represents over 12,000 internal medicine physicians, residents in training and medical students.  For more on the award click link below.
