Changing "What ifs" to "Why not prevent it". And that's just for starters. Patient Safety incidents at U.S. hospitals show no decline, cost $8.9 billion. This was the finding on Medicare patients by the Health Grades, an independent healthcare ratings organization. This study concludes that nearly one million patient-safety incidents occurred over the years 2006- 2008. One in ten patients -- 99,180 individuals -- experiencing a patient-safety incident died as a result. Patients at hospitals in the top 5% hospitals experienced 43% fewer patient safety incidents, on average, compared to poorly performing hospitals. The report says that if all hospitals performed at this level, 218,572 patient safety incidents and 22,590 deaths could potentially have been avoided. This webinar covers proactive practices from other industries that can be applied to healthcare. Some of them have been already implemented by some hospitals such as Johns Hopkins, Allegheny General, and the VA hospitals.
