Nebraska Coalition for Patient Safety


Health Care


In 2005, the Patient Safety Improvement Act was passed by the Nebraska Legislature. This Act directed the five founding Associations (Nebraska Hospital Association, Nebraska Medical Association, Nebraska Academy of Physician Assistants, Nebraska Pharmacists Association and the Nebraska Nurses Association) to establish a private, nonprofit patient safety organization, independent of state agencies—the Nebraska Coalition for Patient Safety (NCPS).  The Nebraska Coalition for Patient Safety was formed in 2006. In 2009, NCPS became a federally listed patient safety organization.  The goal of both the state and federal legislation is to increase the likelihood that all people who seek health care in Nebraska and across the U.S.  are not harmed by the care that is intended to help them.
