Nancy L. Dawson, M.D.
Nancy L. Dawson, M.D., has an interest in improving the quality and safety of patient care in the hospital. This includes increasing the safety of high-risk medications and improving transitions of care.
Significance to patient care
Improved medication safety reduces errors and potential patient harm. The goal of reducing 30-day readmissions by improving the transition of patients from hospital to home is to ensure patients have the necessary tools and understanding to be successful at home after discharge. This improves not only their care but also their satisfaction with the care.
