This week is Canadian Patient Safety Week and UHN is focusing on Safety Culture. In an organization with a strong safety culture, everyone is responsible for safety! This week, take a moment to review
UHN's Safety Behaviour & Error Prevention Tools which are foundational communication tools that help us prioritize patient and TeamUHN safety. Also, I encourage you to share your opinion on UHN's safety culture through our
Safety Culture Survey. By completing the survey, you will help us identify accomplishments and opportunities for improvement related to UHN's safety culture.
October 22-28 is Canadian Intensive Care Week, an opportunity to celebrate our ICU colleagues and their tremendous service to UHN and our patients. Our critical care teams care for our sickest patients and provide support to their families when they are at their most vulnerable. They make difficult decisions daily, and provide support for one another whenever it is needed. Please join me in expressing sincere gratitude for our critical care colleagues, whose resilience and composure keeps our ICUs running efficiently.

October is Hungarian Heritage Month in Ontario, which gives us all a chance to reflect on the indelible contributions Hungarian Canadians have made to our province and country. From the Hungarian immigrants in the early 20th century who worked in steel mills and helped build the Welland Canal connecting two Great Lakes to those who continue today to make remarkable contributions to business, arts, sports, science, law, and medicine and technology, we know Hungarian Canadians enrich our societies. More than 37,000 Hungarians were welcomed in Canada after the Hungarian Uprising on Oct. 23, 1956, which sought political reform and independence from the Soviet Union. The acceptance of Hungarian refugees during that period was considered a turning point for Canada and helped shape more welcoming immigration and multiculturalism policies. We celebrate alongside all TeamUHN members of Hungarian descent!
