Tweets & Notes from a Patient Safety Conference

I’m taking notes via Twitter and I will post some below. The conference hashtag is #PSSTS. I’ll  update this post occasionally over the next few days. And, I’m going to do a separate post Monday on the speeches given by President Clinton and Vice President Biden.
