Misericordia implemented the Manitoba Institute for Patient Safety (MIPS) initiative, It’s Safe to Ask. We recognize the essential role patients and their families play in the care and treatment they receive, and so they are encouraged to ask a health-care professional these three questions while receiving healthcare services:
- What is my health problem?
- What do I need to do?
- Why do I need to do this?
We continue to promote this initiative through orientation and training, promotional material throughout facility and during our annual Patient Safety Week.
