- Underlining the need for preparation and administration, the most critical aspects of safe patient care around the world, BD launched a new patient safety program for hospitals, called Preventing Risks of Infections and Medication Errors in IV Therapy or PRIME, to address the challenges of medication safety and infection prevention. The program, developed by Joint Commission International for Patient Safety, was sponsored by BD under which JCI and BD created a practical curriculum with a focus on critical skills to life. The objective was to upgrade the healthcare facilities across India to improve patient safety and cost efficiency, better patient outcomes, eliminate complications, and promise access to better care. It was launched across Japan, Thailand, the Philippines, South Korea, Malaysia, India, and Vietnam.
