    All healthcare workers, from nurses to pharmacists, housekeepers to consultants, should be kept safe as they carry out their essential duties in caring for others. Not only is their physical safety important, but their psychological wellbeing is paramount too. Healthcare workers should be kept safe from all forms of physical occupational hazard, including infectious agents, chemical hazards, workplace violence and ergonomic problems.[1] Specific measures have been put in place to protect the occupational health and safety of health workers, and there are consequential duties, rights and r

    Frontline healthcare staff have undoubtedly been disproportionately affected by Covid-19 infections.[4][5][6] Issues with PPE supplies at the start of pandemic and a failure to respond to the virus as airborne, meant that many were working without adequate protection. This left thousands of staff and patients vulnerable to hospital acquired infections, and increased the risk of the virus being transmitted to loved ones at home.[7][8] It is essential now that all measures are taken to prevent further avoidable harm. In this article, I talk about the dangerous holes that remain in current P

    On a ward round in 2005 I was about to send home a man who had been successfully treated for pneumonia with intravenous antibiotics. He asked me what was wrong with his left arm. When I looked he had an obvious infection around the intravenous cannula with signs of the infection spreading up the vein. He had been treated with intravenous antibiotics which had been changed to oral 3 days earlier. At that point the cannula should have been removed. It turned out that the infection was caused by MRSA and he required a further 2 weeks of intravenous antibiotics to eradicate the infection. I p

    Up to 8,700 patients died after catching Covid-19 while in hospital being treated for another medical problem, according to official NHS data obtained by the Guardian. The figures, which were provided by the hospitals themselves, were described as “horrifying” by relatives of those who died. Jeremy Hunt, the former health secretary, said that hospital-acquired Covid “remains one of the silent scandals of this pandemic, causing many thousands of avoidable deaths”. NHS leaders and senior doctors have long claimed hospitals have struggled to stop Covid spreading because of shortage

    The first new hospital cleaning standards for 14 years have been outlined by regulators, including confirmation of new food hygiene-style star ratings. Wards and theatres will be given ratings from one to five stars – based on audits which score the cleanliness of areas against safe standards – and these ratings will be made visible to patients. The plans for the new star ratings, which are expected to be easier for patients to understand than the current cleanliness percentage scores, were first revealed by HSJ in 2019. The ratings are also designed to encourage a more collabor

    Wards at a trust facing an inquiry over the deaths of vulnerable patients have been downgraded to ‘inadequate’ over fresh patient safety concerns. The Care Quality Commission said five adult and intensive wards across three hospitals run by Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys (TEWV) Foundation Trust “did not manage patient safety incidents well”. It also criticised the trust’s leaders for failing to make sure staff knew how to assess patient risk. The watchdog rated the trust’s acute wards for adults of working age and psychiatric intensive care units as “inadequate” overall as well as for s

    More than 40,600 people have been likely infected with coronavirus while being treated in hospital in England for another reason, raising concerns about the NHS’s inability to protect them. In one in five hospitals at least a fifth of all patients found to have the virus caught it while an inpatient. North Devon district hospital in Barnstaple had the highest rate of such cases among acute trusts in England at 31%. NHS England figures also reveal stark regional differences in patients’ risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 during their stay. Just under a fifth (19%) of thos

    Overview Human error (HE) in global medicine kills 2.6 million annually placing patient safety on the G20 Summit (1). Solutions available (a) more staff training dominated by a HE-rate of about one error in 200 tasks and (b) a simple computer system used by high reliability organisations such as Banking with zero HE. With 70% of adverse events occurring on wards, patients should electronically acknowledge each intervention with their wristband-data. Missed interventions now detectable are compellingly alarmed reducing the consequences of HE 10,000 fold. Problem: The Healthcare s

    NHS England has told hospitals to begin planning for the use of Nightingale Hospitals as the numbers of coronavirus patients in hospitals is expected to surge in coming weeks. In a letter sent on Wednesday night hospitals were told to activate all of their emergency capacity to cope with the expected pressures over the coming weeks. This is likely to mean the mass redeployment of staff and designating wards, surgical theatres and recovery areas as makeshift intensive care units for patients. NHS England did not explain how the Nightingale Hospitals would be staffed if the decisi
