The focus of this year’s National Nurses Week, which concludes today, is “Culture of Safety: It Starts With You.” In an AHASTAT blog post today, Pamela Thompson, CEO of the American Organization of Nurse Executives, notes, “Patient safety is imbedded in all of AONE’s competencies for nursing leaders. It is a core value of AONE’s Care Innovation and Transformation work as well. And, although the celebration this week honors nurses and remembers Florence Nightingale’s birth, we know that it is the whole health care team that creates the environment in which we care for others.” This is also National Hospital Week. AHA (@ahahospitals) yesterday hosted a Twitter Chat with AONE (@tweetAONE) to commemorate the two events. AONE is an AHA subsidiary.
