Nursing Care

Nursing care at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care and safety to our patients. We participate in PatientCareLink as part of this commitment. Through PatientCareLink, Massachusetts hospitals are working to reduce medical errors and promote a safe and supportive work environment, publicly report staffing plans that meet patients' needs, alleviate shortages of nurses and other caregivers, and work collaboratively with others to ensure access to safe, high-quality care for all.
