Review for Alliance for Safety Awareness for Patients, Sherman Oaks, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Alicia Cole is founder of the Alliance for Safety Awareness for Patients (ASAP). She was one of the keynote speaker at the 2010 Conference for Healthcare Transparency and Patient Advocacy in Lexington, KY. Her message was riveting and relevant. As she shared her story you could hear a pin drop. After being the victim of a iatrogenic infection (hospital acquired), she has chosen to channel her energies (in spite of ongoing health issues) as a patient advocate to help make healthcare safer for others. All laypeople and healthcare workers from the bedside to the C-Suite should make an effort to hear Alicia speak. GO! Hospital acquired infections kill > 90,000 people each year.
