Product Description

Product Description

As part of its Speak Up patient safety initiative, The Joint Commission has created the Help Avoid Mistakes With Your Medicine brochures and posters, which provides basic tips on how patients can help prevent medication mistakes. Both the brochure and poster include practical medication safety tips for patients visiting the doctor’s office and pharmacy, or a hospital and clinic. The brochure also includes space for patients to list all medications they’re taking.

Speak Up™ encourages the public to:
  • Speak up if you have questions or concerns. If you still don’t understand, ask again. It’s your body and you have a right to know.
  • Pay attention to the care you get. Always make sure you’re getting the right treatments and medicines by the right health care professionals. Don’t assume anything.
  • Educate yourself about your illness. Learn about the medical tests you get, and your treatment plan.
  • Ask a trusted family member or friend to be your advocate (advisor or supporter).
  • Know what medicines you take and why you take them. Medicine errors are the most common health care mistakes.
  • Use a hospital, clinic, surgery center, or other type of health care organization that has been carefully checked out. For example, The Joint Commission visits hospitals to see if they are meeting The Joint Commission’s quality standards.
  • Participate in all decisions about your treatment. You are the center of the health care team.
