Speakers will include: Helen Haskell, Moms Against Medical Error, Dr. Robert Schultz, author of the "Bedside Advocate's Journal,” and Greenville County Probate Judge Deborah Faulkner.

The event will be from 1-4 p.m. and is free and materials are provided prior to the session. The main branch of the Greenville Library is located at 25 Heritage Green Place in Greenville.

AARP has worked to improve patient safety, advocating for one of the first laws in the country to require South Carolina hospitals to report hospital acquired infections to the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control providing the rates at which their patients are acquiring infections. This reporting has increased the level of accountability SC hospitals have towards consumers will help to minimize and/or prevent dangerous and costly hospital acquired-infections.
AARP also successfully advocated for the Lewis Blackmon Patient Safety Act requiring hospital employees to wear name identification badges that clearly state who and what they do.
