Abstract
Les gens s'attendent à recevoir des soins de santé en toute sécurité. Les fournisseurs de soins de santé travaillent fort tous les jours pour offrir d'excellents soins de santé, en toute sécurité. Malgré tout, des choses imprévisibles peuvent se produire. Par exemple, un patient peut faire une chute ou recevoir la mauvaise dose d'un médicament. Ces événements imprévus sont des incidents liés à la sécurité des patients. Cette brochure explique ce qu'est la divulgation, de quelle façon elle peut vous aider, comment elle a lieu, qui communiquera avec vous, quels sont vos droits et où vous pouvez obtenir plus d'information.
