4 ways patient safety is at risk in your hospital and what to do about it
For hospitals and health systems, healing is the mission and patient safety is priority No.1
Some significant challenges to patient safety and optimal outcomes include infections, patient falls, distracted providers and expedited stroke care. Mortality from sepsis increases 8 percent every hour treatment is delayed. Hundreds of thousands of people in the U.S. fall in the hospital each year, and a third to a half of those falls result in injury. Distraction has been shown to play a role in nearly 75 percent of medical errors. About 700,000 people in the U.S. have a stroke each year, and 24 percent of them die.
