Patient Health and Safety

The Children's Hospital at Saint Francis is here to help you with your child's healthcare needs. In addiiton to the doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers caring for your child, you are an important member of the healthcare team. You can help the healthcare team avoid medical errors and can be an active participant in the care of your child's health needs.

Some of the ways you can be an active participant in your child's care are to provide accurate information about your child, wash your hands often to prevent the spread of infection, and report any changes in your child's condition to his/her doctor or nurse.
