In 2004, the New Jersey Patient Safety Act (P.L. 2004, c.9) was signed into law. The statute was designed to improve patient safety in hospitals and other health care facilities by establishing a medical error reporting system.
Rather than seeking to place blame, the system promotes comprehensive reporting of adverse patient events, systematic analysis of their causes, and creation of solutions that will improve health care quality and save lives.
This site is designed to help health care facilities develop strong patient safety programs and fulfill the law’s mandatory reporting requirements.
