PULSE of NY now known as Pulse Center for Patient Safety Education & Advocacy is a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 community-based organization dedicated to raising awareness about patient safety through advocacy, education and support. Pulse envisions a world in which the patient’s voice is heard and no one is harmed by healthcare.
In our work with patients, families and communities Pulse values effective communication, respect, diversity, accountability, honesty, teamwork, compassion, and above all safety.
Since 1996 Pulse has been educating the public about patient safety. Our advocacy training empowers the patient, and the family and friends of the patient, to partner with their health care providers, helping to ensure the best possible outcomes in a person’s medical care. We collaborate with medical professionals and the public to accomplish this work
