Hoping you’ve made plans to attend next month’s HQI Annual Conference, but if you haven’t yet, it’s not too late to register. This year, we’re gathering in Lake Tahoe on Oct. 15-16 for the chance to connect and reconnect with peers and experts, and to tap into patient safety excellence, while zeroing in on zero-harm care.
Getting physically and verbally abused has become far too commonplace for health care workers. And while these circumstances against health care workers are nothing new, they have steadily increased over the past decade and were further exacerbated by the pandemic.
In some cases, meaning gets lost behind a string of words.
Next month, and then again in November, we’ll gather in Long Beach and Napa, respectively for the HQI Annual Conference.

Earlier this month, California reached a milestone that at many times throughout the course of the past year might have seemed unattainable. The state has now “reopened” for business, retiring the color-coded tier system and relaxing social distancing and capacity restrictions. After more than 15 months of numerous public health orders, three surges of cases, countless mask and gown changes along with many sleepless nights, the COVID-19 pandemic has finally given us a little bit of breathing room.
