Weaknesses resulting from a patchwork of patient safety processes developed by individual healthcare organisations over the past quarter-century, exposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, can be remedied through both local systems design support and widespread best practices uniformity.
James BC and colleagues. offer a brief look at patient safety progress made over the past decades, then describe the problems exposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. To correct those problems, they call for the integration of national-level uniformity of defined best practices, and local-level redevelopment and reinforcement of robust systems-level support for staffing and processes to sustain those patient safety practices.
