    Hundreds of patients with metallic implants narrowly avoided death or serious injury after being wrongly referred for MRI scans, an investigation revealed yesterday. The powerful magnets used in the machines can displace and damage metallic items such as pacemakers, ear implants and aneurysm clips. Doctors should question patients and check medical records before requesting a scan because of the risk of injury. But hospitals in England recorded 315 near-misses from April 2020 to March 2022 involving patients sent for an MRI. An MRI scan at Mid Yorkshire Hospitals Trust was ditch

    Coroner's concerns Asher was entirely dependent upon a complex package of care as a highly vulnerable ventilator dependent child. Evidence at inquest was that on numerous occasions he was not provided with the prescribed 2:1 care. The care package, despite being described as one of the most complex and most expensive was not appropriately reviewed and there was no mandatory system of quality checks or formal review when there was a significant change in family circumstances. Quarterly reviews were not carried out without explanation. The primary responsibility fell upon the famil

    The World Health Organization (WHO) introduced the surgical safety checklist in 2009 after a successful trial in eight pilot countries; the term ‘Never Event’ has been in existence since 2001.[1] NHS England defines a Never Event as; “Serious incidents that are entirely preventable because guidance of safety recommendations providing strong systematic barriers are available at a national level and should have been implemented by all healthcare providers.” The current list of Never Events still only classes three reportable intra-operative ‘Never Events’: wrong site surgery, wrong imp

    The webinar starts with an introduction to the concept of near misses in healthcare and the challenges faced in learning from these near misses to improve safety. You will then hear how near misses are approached in rail and nuclear and how controls are developed in their processes. You will: Gain valuable insights from all three sectors: healthcare, rail and nuclear. Hear discussion about defining near misses with respect to controls. Learn how to build barriers in systems.

    This free webinar will explore near misses in three different sectors and how controls can, or cannot, be developed to prevent future events. It will start with an introduction to the concept of near misses in healthcare and the challenges faced in learning from these near misses to improve safety. You will then hear how near misses are approached in rail and nuclear and how controls are developed in their processes. At this event, you’ll: Gain valuable insights from all three sectors: healthcare, rail and nuclear. Hear discussion about defining near misses with respect

    The focus of CORESS is on detecting and learning from no-harm, near-miss and low harm events encountered during routine surgical practice. The programme collects reports of such events, analyses them and disseminates the learning contained within them to a wide surgical audience and other agencies involved in Patient Safety matters. These events are known collectively as ‘Accident Precursor Events’ or simply ‘Precursors’. See previous reports below. Summer 2021 - Unrecognised limb ischemia following trauma, differences of opinion in management for tongue laceration, lack of communica

    Case submission When submitting a case, the following information is required. Title (please provide an appropriate title for the case). Patient Description (describe the patient [as much as you would in a case summary] at the time of the event of interest) Nature of Error (the nature of the error and any relevant events or contributing factors) Impacts/Effects (describe the impact of the error on the patient and state whether the patient was harmed or required increased level of care, even if only temporarily) How Error was Recognised (if not noted above,

    Policy Points: Healthcare complaints contain valuable data on quality and safety; however, there is no reliable method of analysis to unlock their potential. The authors demonstrate a method to analyse healthcare complaints that provides reliable insights on hot spots (where harm and near misses occur) and blind spots (before admissions, after discharge, systemic and low-level problems, and errors of omission). Systematic analysis of healthcare complaints can improve quality and safety by providing patient-centred insights that localise issues and shed light on difficult-to

    'To support all prescribers in prescribing safely and effectively, a single prescribing competency framework was originally published by the National Prescribing Centre/National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in 2012. NICE and Health Education England approached the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) to manage the update of the framework on behalf of all the prescribing professions in the UK. A Competency Framework for all Prescribers was first published by the RPS in July 2016. Going forward, the RPS will continue to maintain and publish this framework in collabora

    Subject: Looking for Clinical Champions (Patient Safety Managers, Risk Managers, Nurses, Frontline clinical staff) to join AI startup Hello colleagues, I am Yesh. I am the founder and CEO of Scalpel. <www.scalpel.ai> We are on a mission to make surgery safer and more efficient with ZERO preventable incidents across the globe. We are building an AI (artificially intelligent) assistant for surgical teams so that they can perform safer and more efficient operations. (I know AI is vaguely used everywhere these days, to be very specific, we use a sensor fusion approach and deplo

    Hi The new Patient Safety Incident Response Framework is due for publication this month for early adopters and as 'introductory guidance' for everyone else: https://improvement.nhs.uk/resources/about-new-patient-safety-incident-response-framework/ I wondered if there is anyone who is involved in an organisation that is an early adopter who can share what has happened so far and also would be willing to share any local learning as the new framework is implemented? Also, more generally wondered if anyone has any initial comments on the proposals which were mentioned in the NH
