Programming began last Friday (1), the date of the National Patient Safety Day celebration, with the distribution of the “Pipoxe” brochure
On Tuesday (the fifth) and Wednesday (the sixth), the Seara Health Department units (Sesa) carry out activities to address patient safety with staff and users of the Unified Health System (SUS). On Thursday (7), What is Fair Culture and its implications for patient safety will be livestreamed on YouTube from the School of Health and Management (ESG), from the Institute of Health and Hospital Management (ISGH), which manages hospitals.
Next week, on April 13 and 14, the measures will be aimed at boosting the mental health of workers, referring to Abril Verde, a movement to raise awareness of health and safety at work. The program began last Friday (1), the date on which National Patient Safety Day is celebrated, with the distribution of the Pipoxe brochure.
The month was chosen for the dynamics because it also presents two other dates suitable for the region: this Thursday (seventh), World Health Day, designated by the World Health Organization; And on the twenty-eighth, the World Day for Safety and Health at Work, endorsed by the International Labor Organization.
Check out some of the initiatives already implemented:
Northern Regional Hospital
At HRN, in Sobral, the Center for Patient Management and Safety (Nugesp) promoted a blitz awareness campaign. According to Equipment Risk Manager, Kildere Teofilo, the topic covered was “a fair culture of patient safety, in which accidents and safety issues are looked at in a systematic way, including analyzing operations and not focusing on looking for culprits, but working on weaknesses and striving to improve Safety is in helping users. This illustrates the importance of reporting accidents and adverse events that occur through the practice of care.”

At HRC, in Juazeiro do Norte, Nugesp has also organized an initiative to draw the staff’s attention and remind them of procedures that ensure patient safety and a fair culture. The unit’s time clock is approaching. Workers received a brochure and instructions on the topic and schedule for the month.
Central Regional Hospital Sertau
At the HRSC, a workshop was held to encourage historical rescue and important concepts for understanding patient safety. The aim was to equip participants to relate the theoretical framework to their practice within the hospital. It was a very rich moment, sparking many ideas and sharing experiences,” says risk manager Junis Albuquerque.
Leonardo da Vinci State Hospital
The procedure that went through some of the unit’s recovery floors sought to raise awareness and familiarize staff with the subject of Just Culture. At the moment, a brochure has also been delivered that brings the approach to the topic in a playful way with crossword puzzles, word search and the game of seven errors. With each release of the material, work will be done on a new topic.

Activities in hospitals continue throughout the month of April
Strategically, a plaque was created in front of the cafeteria with key phrases from the campaign and a mural, indicating the unit’s social networks, so that people could record the moment with photos. Chocolates and plates were distributed to encourage safe care practices, as well as a conversation with the audience about the importance of awareness. HGWA participates in the Safe Patient Project (PPS), at Moinhos de Vento (RS) Hospital. The unit is the only ISGH-run selected for the initiative.

The procedure was implemented at CCC in partnership with Core Quality and Safety Management (NGQS). “We introduce the Just Culture theme, which is a practice of encouraging employees to report adverse events, promoting analysis of these causes, and thus the ability to demonstrate improvements not only to our patients, but to the team,” explains equipment nurse Joyce Amorim.
