The Center for Patient Safety (CPS), established in 2005, is an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to reducing preventable harm. At CPS, our focus is on learning what medical errors occur, why they occur and how to prevent patient harm. We emphasize the importance of culture in promoting safe systems of care.

CPS is continually enhancing its PSO, expanding culture assessment offerings, including the development of culture surveys for EMS and home care, developing innovative educational programs, creating shared accountability models that drive transparency and encourage reporting of errors that will result in learnings, and providing many free resources to support the global initiative for safer care.

Today, CPS is one of the largest and most active organizations dedicated to patient safety, working with healthcare providers across the country and across the continuum of care to reduce preventable harm.
