Oct. 8-14 is Healthcare Security and Safety Week and a time to celebrate UW Medicine’s Public Safety Officers. Public Safety Officers play a critical role in serving our patients, staff, faculty, residents, patient families, students, volunteers, contractors and visitors.

The theme for Healthcare Security and Safety Week 2023 is “Honored to Serve on the Patient Care Team.” It recognizes and acknowledges the integral role our public safety officers play in our patient care process by providing a safe and secure healing environment. It also acknowledges the strong commitment, diligence and care public safety officers display in their practice and profession.
