Health Care Compliance

Patient safety and best practice guidelines. We got it, right?

  • When it comes to patient safety, it's always top-of-mind. Your surgical team has their system down pat, but sometimes infections happen and the reason is not always known.

    Of every 100 patients admitted to a hospital, five will acquire an infection during their stay, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).1

Improving your patient safety means better patient outcomes

    Reducing preventable complications seems easy enough to do. But it might not always be clear what they are. 3M can help you through the Safety in Practice Program.
