Abstract
When people become patients, they place their trust in their health care
providers. As providers assume responsibility for their diagnosis and treatment, patients
have a right to expect that this will include responsibility for their safety during
all aspects of care. However, increasing epidemiological data make it clear that patient
safety is a global problem. Improved nursing care may prevent many adverse
events, and nursing must take a stronger leadership role in this area. Although errors
are almost inevitable, safety can be improved, and health care institutions are
increasingly making safety a top priority. Information technology provides safety benefits
by enhancing communication and delivering decision-support;its use will likely
be a cornerstone for improving safety. This paper will discuss the status of patient
safety from an international viewpoint, provide case studies from different countries,
and discuss information technology solutions from a nursing perspective.
