Patient safety film 

Download our patient safety card (pdf)Based on the concept of airline safety advice given before Aircraft take off, patients can now watch the short film below and print out the information card to inform them of potential risks in a  hospital, which for many, can be a new and unfamiliar environment.

The safety advice looks at simple things patients can do while in hospital to make their stay safer. The advice focuses on eight areas:

  • falls prevention
  • blood clots
  • infection prevention
  • speaking to staff if patients have any problems or questions
  • medicine safety
  • pressure ulcer avoidance
  • correct personal information
  • discharge from hospital
