Patient Safety

As indicated in our Patient and Family Promise, safety is our top priority at Wake Forest Baptist Health. Our comprehensive safety program promotes a culture that encourages our providers and staff to report all patient safety concerns. With a focus on eliminating preventable harm, we implement best practices to create a safe environment for all, including patients, visitors and staff.
