PULSE (Persons United Limiting Substandards and Errors in Healthcare) 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 1996 PULSE of NY has been working with patients and families who have experienced a medical injury. Through PULSE support groups and community 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, while focusing on solutions.
Our priority at PULSE of NY is the patient, and your needs are our concern. Let us help you make informed choices.
If you feel you have experienced a medical error or adverse event and want your experience to be heard so others may learn from your experience, you have also come to the right place.
See how we work...
We Don't Just Advocate for You, We Teach Your Family and Friends How To Become Part of Your Healthcare Team. PULSE advocates for the whole family! For more information visit Family Centered Patient Advocacy.
PULSE was founded in 1996 as part of the South Nassau Unitarian Universalist Congregation Social Action Committee. PULSE still functions independently thanks to the in-kind support of the congregation.
