The purpose of the National Hospital Patient Safety Goals is to improve patient safety. The goals focus on problems in health care safety and how to solve them.
Introduced in 2002, the National Patient Safety Goals were developed to help accredited organizations address specific patient safety issues and are updated yearly. Each goal specifies one or more evidence-based practices that have been shown to decrease errors while creating a safer patient environment.
