Alliance for Safety Awareness for Patients
We are dedicated to saving lives and improving healthcare by spreading awareness and ending hospital-acquired infections.
The Alliance for Safety Awareness for Patients (ASAP) is a non-profit organization formed by Alicia Cole and her parents Ron & Betty Cole. Alicia is a Survivor of Necrotizing Fasciitis and Sepsis which she contracted following routine surgery at a top rated hospital in August of 2006. After discovering a black dot on her daughter’s stomach Mrs. Cole’s insistence on alerting the doctor was said to have saved Alicia’s life.
