Patient Safety Support, Education and Advocacy

Pulse of NY Logo Family Centered Patient Advocacy Training Patient Safety Advisory Council Logo

PULSE of NY leads the nation in grassroots patient safety education and encourages culture changes to enable patient participation to reduce unplanned outcomes costing the economy as much as $29 billion a year.Since 1997 PULSE of NY has been working with patients and families who have experienced a medical injury. Through PULSE support groups, community outreach and education, patients and their family members share experiences and for the first time have a place to talk about the outcomes that changed their lives forever.

Whether you have recently been diagnosed with a life changing medical condition, or are about to become a patient in today’s health care system, or are a medical professional in need of medical treatment, or want to help a friend or family member as they go through the health care system, we can help you take steps to help ensure safe, quality care.

Our priority at PULSE is the patient and your needs. Let us help you make informed choices.
