Re-Confirms Its Commitment to Patient Safety

FAIRFAX, VA--(Marketwire - March 7, 2011) - FOAA Anesthesia Services, a leading provider of anesthesia services, joins with the National Patient Safety Foundation in observing Patient Safety Awareness Week, March 6-11, 2011. Patient Safety Awareness Week is an annual NPSF-led education and awareness campaign for healthcare safety. Each year, healthcare organizations, like FOAA Anesthesia Services, take part in the event by prominently displaying the NPSF campaign logo and creating awareness in the community. According to the NPSF, a focus on empowering patients and strengthening patient-provider communications are seen as paramount to reducing error within the health system and reducing readmission rates.

"Anesthesia treatment in the U.S. is safer than ever, thanks to an industry-wide commitment to newer and better anesthesia delivery methods, sophisticated monitoring technology, rigorous training and credentialing and safer equipment," says Vincent J. Vilasi, M.D., president of FOAA Anesthesia Services. "Those of us at FOAA join with the National Patient Safety Foundation in its efforts to educate the public during National Patient Safety Week about how FOAA's commitment to patient safety results in better surgical outcomes and quicker recovery."
