This unique and engaging open access title provides a compelling and ground-breaking account of the patient safety movement in the United States, told from the perspective of one of its most prominent leaders, and arguably the movement’s founder, Lucian L. Leape, MD. Covering the growth of the field from the late 1980s to 2015, Dr. Leape details the developments, actors, organizations, research, and policy-making activities that marked the evolution and major advances of patient safety in this time span. In addition, and perhaps most importantly, this book not only comprehensively details how and why human and systems errors too often occur in the process of providing health care, it also promotes an in-depth understanding of the principles and practices of patient safety, including how they were influenced by today’s modern safety sciences and systems theory and design. Indeed, the book emphasizes how the growing awareness of systems-design thinking and the self-education and commitment to improving patient safety, by not only Dr. Leape but a wide range of other clinicians and health executives from both the private and public sectors, all converged to drive forward the patient safety movement in the US. Making Healthcare Safe is divided into four parts: I. In the Beginning describes the research and theory that defined patient safety and the early initiatives to enhance it. II. Institutional Responses tells the stories of the efforts of the major organizations that began to apply the new concepts and make patient safety a reality. Most of these stories have not been previously told, so this account becomes their histories as well. III. Getting to Work provides in-depth analyses of four key issues that cut across disciplinary lines impacting patient safety which required special attention. IV. Creating a Culture of Safety looks to the future, marshalling the best thinking about what it will take to achieve the safe care we all deserve. Captivatingly written with an “insider’s” tone and a major contribution to the clinical literature, this title will be of immense value to health care professionals, to students in a range of academic disciplines, to medical trainees, to health administrators, to policymakers and even to lay readers with an interest in patient safety and in the critical quest to create safe care.

OBJECTIVES: To review and summarize the evidence for selected patient safety practices (PSPs) and factors important to their successful implementation and adoption. DATA SOURCES: Searches of computerized databases for articles in peer-reviewed publications and in the gray literature. METHODS: The full project team took part in some or all of the following six-step report process: 1. Development of conceptual framework2. Identification, selection, and prioritization of harm area topics3. Identification, selection, and prioritization of patient safety practices4. Literature searches5. Review of the evidence6. Report development To conduct the literature searches, the project team identified PSP-specific search terms and ran them for every PSP in the MEDLINE and CINHAL databases, filtering for English publications only between 2008 and 2018. Across the PSPs examined, there was wide variation in the rigor of studies included in the evidence reviews. Individual authors decided the minimum threshold of quality for including specific studies given the state of the field for each PSP. We aimed to apply the criteria drawn from the Evidence-based Practice Center "Methods Guide for Effectiveness and Comparative Effectiveness Reviews" on strength of evidence derived from GRADE. To the extent possible, authors for each review indicated the strength of evidence by practice, outcome, and/or setting. RESULTS: The five major threats to safety that were addressed include medication management issues, healthcare-associated infections, nursing sensitive events, procedural events, and diagnostic errors; and the report covers 47 PSPs in 17 specific harm areas. The PSPs were chosen for inclusion in the report based on the high-impact harms they address and interest in the status of their appropriateness for use. While the team was going through the process of selecting PSPs to address specific harm areas, it became evident that several cross-cutting contextual factors should also be reviewed. These cross-cutting practices are improving safety culture; teamwork and team training; clinical decision support; person and family engagement; cultural and linguistic competency; staff education and training; and data monitoring, audit, and feedback. CONCLUSIONS: The amount of published research in patient safety has exponentially grown since the last AHRQ "Making Health Care Safer" report was published in 2013, albeit with publications varying in quality. PSPs that are more well-established are now being investigated in light of emerging harms, such as the applicability of infection-prevention-related PSPs to address the threat from multidrug-resistant organisms. Similarly, emerging PSPs are being investigated for use to address well-established harms, such as the use of clinical decision support to reduce diagnostic errors. It is clear that a wide range of factors impact the effectiveness of PSPs with respect to their ability to prevent harm.

Experts estimate that as many as 98,000 people die in any given year from medical errors that occur in hospitals. That's more than die from motor vehicle accidents, breast cancer, or AIDS--three causes that receive far more public attention. Indeed, more people die annually from medication errors than from workplace injuries. Add the financial cost to the human tragedy, and medical error easily rises to the top ranks of urgent, widespread public problems. To Err Is Human breaks the silence that has surrounded medical errors and their consequence--but not by pointing fingers at caring health care professionals who make honest mistakes. After all, to err is human. Instead, this book sets forth a national agenda--with state and local implications--for reducing medical errors and improving patient safety through the design of a safer health system. This volume reveals the often startling statistics of medical error and the disparity between the incidence of error and public perception of it, given many patients' expectations that the medical profession always performs perfectly. A careful examination is made of how the surrounding forces of legislation, regulation, and market activity influence the quality of care provided by health care organizations and then looks at their handling of medical mistakes. Using a detailed case study, the book reviews the current understanding of why these mistakes happen. A key theme is that legitimate liability concerns discourage reporting of errors--which begs the question, "How can we learn from our mistakes?" Balancing regulatory versus market-based initiatives and public versus private efforts, the Institute of Medicine presents wide-ranging recommendations for improving patient safety, in the areas of leadership, improved data collection and analysis, and development of effective systems at the level of direct patient care. To Err Is Human asserts that the problem is not bad people in health care--it is that good people are working in bad systems that need to be made safer. Comprehensive and straightforward, this book offers a clear prescription for raising the level of patient safety in American health care. It also explains how patients themselves can influence the quality of care that they receive once they check into the hospital. This book will be vitally important to federal, state, and local health policy makers and regulators, health professional licensing officials, hospital administrators, medical educators and students, health caregivers, health journalists, patient advocates--as well as patients themselves.
