While receiving care at UCSF Medical Center, your safety is our primary concern. Many procedures are in place to protect your well-being and to secure the best medical outcome possible for you. However, as with any system, these safeguards are not completely error proof. By working with your health care team, you can help us ensure a safer health care experience for you.
Please let us know is something seems unsafe or you see something that we can do better. We welcome your concerns and questions and encourage you to express them to your doctors, nurses and other staff as they will know whom to contact to correct the situation.
