Zero Harm Safety Booklet

At The Miriam Hospital, we believe effective patient safety practices are a partnership between patient and provider. Your healthcare team is focused on keeping you safe from harm—but we need you and your family to help us!

Our Zero Harm safety booklet outlines our patient safety procedures and some steps you, the patient, can take to help you return home earlier, receive the most effective care, and prevent injuries.

Available in English, Portuguese, Spanish, and Russian, Zero Harm details The Miriam’s measures for preventing issues such as: 

  • Falls
  • Immobility
  • Pressure injuries
  • Central line associated blood stream infections (CLABSI)
  • Catheter associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI)

When it comes to patient safety, your cooperation allows us to deliver health with CARE.
