4th Annual Hospital Safety Center Symposium will focus on Joint Commission hot spots

Having already worked on things behind the scenes for several months, I’m very excited to announce that the 4th Annual Hospital Safety Center Symposium takes place May 6-7 in Las Vegas.

The symposium is the leading conference for hospital safety professionals, and as always we’ve got a packed agenda in just a day-and-a-half, making this a convenient event to attend with minimal time away from your facility or office.

This year we’re focusing on Joint Commission hot spots in the environment of care, emergency management, and life safety. On that latter point, one of our kickoff sessions at the symposium will dissect a CMS Life Safety Code survey, straight from a state authority having jurisdiction.

We’ll talk more about the Hospital Safety Center Symposium in the coming months, and I hope you’ll check out the full agenda and speaker bios.
