2009 National Patient Safety Goals released

Just wanted to let you know that The Joint Commission released the 2009 National Patient Safety Goals earlier today on its Web site:

The first link also has a chart identifying which goals have received changes/deletions/additions, and provides a crosswalk to the new numbering system.
