Patient Safety

As a leading health care provider in the region, Florida Hospital is firmly committed your safety. This includes your physical safety as well as protecting you from inadvertent exposure to hazardous materials and wastes, minimizing the risk of hospital-borne infections and ensuring that our hospital is prepared for any emergency or disaster.
Through our Facilities Management and Safety departments, we continually review our safety procedures and implement changes to further improve the safety of our patients and visitors alike.

Within our Environment of Care program, we develop and implement policies, procedures, protocols and guidelines to ensure the safety of our workforce by properly training them in hazardous materials handling and emergency/disaster response.

One of the cornerstones of our safety program is patient involvement. We encourage our patients to communicate their concerns about safety and the quality of care through our Speak Up program.
