The Community of Madrid lights up the Royal Post Office in orange on the occasion of World Patient Safety Day

The Community of Madrid lights up in orange tonight the façade of the Real Casa de Correos, headquarters of the regional government, on the occasion of the celebration of World Patient Safety Day. The World Health Organization (WHO) agreed last year to celebrate it on September 17 to raise awareness among the population of the importance of the safety of health workers and its interrelationship with patient safety.

This day has a special meaning in 2020, the year in which, according to the WHO in a statement, because of COVID-19, “health care is experiencing the greatest crisis in its history in terms of patient safety.” “The pandemic has put unprecedented pressure on health systems around the world, and a well-informed, trained and motivated staff is critical to providing safe care for patients,” the paper concludes.
