What Is Hospital Safety?
Studies show that hospitals often fail to meet our expectations for the health and safety of patients in their care.
There are many ways that hospital safety problems may result in serious injury to a patient. Hospital safety starts from the moment the patient arrives until he or she leaves. Hospital staff must require proper hygiene and hand-washing from its employees to prevent spread of dangerous germs, for example. Of course, sterile equipment is essential to avoiding spread of infection as well. But hospital safety extends beyond this to include checklists prior to surgery, good communication between all levels of hospital staff, and much more. When a hospital fails to comply with these simple safety measures, it is responsible for any injuries that result.
