    Patient safety incidents, including medical errors and adverse events, frequently occur in intensive care units, leading to a significant psychological burden on healthcare professionals. This burden results in second victim syndrome, which impacts the psychological and psychosomatic wellbeing of these staff members. This systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to examine the occurrence of second victim syndrome among intensive care unit healthcare workers, including the types, prevalence, risk factors and recovery time associated with the condition.

    In this article in the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation Newsletter, Katsuyuki Miyasaka talks about the history of the pulse oximeter in Japan and celebrates one of it's earliest developers, Takuo Aoyagi. The author recognises the life-saving impact of pulse oximeters, but talks about the need for more education and regulation around the use of this readily available device.

    The consultancy firm McKinsey & Company explored the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the nursing workforce in a global survey that included nurses from United States, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Japan, Brazil and France. The survey findings show a consistency around how nurses feel in their roles today, despite the different healthcare systems and delivery networks in each of the six countries. A substantial population of nurses are expressing a desire to leave direct patient care, with between 28% and 38% of nurse respondents in the United States, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Japan and France indicating that they were likely to leave their current role in direct patient care in the next year. This article explores in detail some of the reasons why nurses are choosing to leave direct patient care, and highlights approaches that might encourage retention, including positive leadership initiatives.

    The Japan Council for Quality Health Care (JQ) has been conducting various activities, such as the Project to Collect Medical Near-Miss/Adverse Event Information and the evaluation of medical services provided at hospitals, in order to maintain public confidence in healthcare services and improve the quality of the services.

The reports can also be browsed on JQ's website.
