THROUGH THE YEARS

"I have been involved with Pulse since my wife's untimely death in 1999 due to medical error.  Listening to the stories of other victims of medical error and their families at the Pulse support group meetings has helped the grieving and healing process for my family. We were not alone in our grief. Pulse is an integral part of patient safety, which ultimately will help to reduce medical errors.

My continuing donation will help improve patient safety and awareness.  I have a vested interest in the work of Pulse since I share the same mission of patient safety and reducing medical errors." 
 Leonard Joseph

The Pulse Center for Patient Safety Education & Advocacy (formerly PULSE of NY) was founded in 1996 to empower patients and their families to be active members of their healthcare teams. Research shows that involved and informed patients have better outcomes. Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the country and cost the economy as much as $29 billion a year.

We use the stories and experiences of patients and their families, as well as information and research distributed by nationally recognized 
patient safety organizations, to educate and advocate for safe care. This may mean at the bedside helping your loved ones help you.

Pulse workshops and community programs were developed
with national and local leaders in patient safety. Participants often share health care experiences which Pulse uses to find solutions and make improvements through educational programs. 89% of the people who were surveyed following Pulse programs reported that they will change their behavior because of what they learned.

We never charge for our advocacy services.  To help support this ongoing work, consider making Pulse your charities of choice this year.
