    Up to 600 patients are to be recalled by a hospital after concerns were raised about shoulder operations. Some patients have lost the use of their arm after surgery by Mian Munawar Shah at Walsall Manor Hospital. Angela Glover had two operations by Mr Shah - the first, it later emerged after a review, was unnecessary and a screw had been placed inappropriately. Her partner Simon Roberts said she was in "constant pain" and was unable to raise her arm or grip things in her right hand. It has affected her mental health to the point she had to be sectioned after a suicide attempt, Mr Rob

    A special House panel investigating America's response to the coronavirus pandemic said it has found anecdotal evidence of understaffing at nursing homes that led to patient neglect and harm. At a hearing Wednesday, the select subcommittee on the coronavirus crisis plans to discuss some of its findings, including how large nursing home chains reacted to complaints from staff and families. “Many nursing home facilities were severely understaffed during the early months of the pandemic, leading to deficient care, neglect, and negative health outcomes for residents,” the committee repor

    The Measure Dx Guide is organised into four sections that outline a series of steps to begin and sustain measurement of diagnostic safety: Part I outlines ways to engage people in the organisation to ensure adequate resources to implement measurement and learning activities. Part II contains a self-assessment checklist to gauge readiness for implementation, as well as guidance for choosing a measurement strategy that fits with your organisation's resources. Part III describes four different strategies (systematic approaches to measurement) based on different types of data s

    Performance on waiting times targets at Scotland's hospital A&E units has hit a new low. Figures for the week ending 11 September showed just 63.5% of patients were dealt with within four hours. Health Secretary Humza Yousaf said the figures were "not acceptable" and he was determined to improve performance. Scottish Tory health spokesman Dr Sandesh Gulhane said the figures showed the "crisis in A&E is not merely continuing, but deepening". The Scottish government target is that 95% of patients attending A&E are seen and subsequently admitted or discharged withi

    More than half of maternity units in England fail consistently to meet safety standards, BBC analysis of official statistics shows. Health regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC) rates 7% of units as posing a high risk of avoidable harm. A further 48% require improvement. The figures are slightly worse than a few years ago, despite several attempts to transform maternity care. The regulator says the pace of improvement has been disappointing. In most cases, pregnancy and birth are a positive and safe experience for women and their families, says the CQC. But when things

    A nurse in Somerset has been struck off after she failed to give morphine to a patient before they underwent surgery. Amanda-Jane Price had been suspended from front-line duties since the incident in March 2019. The Nursing and Midwifery Council ruled that Miss Price had been "dishonest" with her colleagues and her ability to practice medicine safely was "impaired". Miss Price had been a nurse at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton since 2018. On 31 March 2019, Miss Price did not administer morphine to an individual in her care, falsely recording in her notes that morphine had bee

WHO describes it as follows: “Patient safe

    Key messages As many as one in ten hospitalisations in OECD countries may be caused by medication related harm. One in five inpatients experience medication-related harms during hospitalisation. Over $54 billion (US Dollars) is spent on medication-related harm in OECD countries (cost from avoidable admissions due to medication related harms plus added length of stay due to preventable hospital-acquired medication-related harms). This report is divided into four main sections: 1. Medication-related harms and errors are not rare events and have significant econ

    Police are preparing to investigate alleged mistreatment of patients at a mental health unit. The Edenfield Centre based in the grounds of the former Prestwich Hospital in Bury is at the centre of the claims. The unit cares for adult patients. The Manchester Evening News understands that action was taken after the BBC Panorama programme embedded a reporter undercover in the unit and then presented the NHS Trust which runs it with their evidence. A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police said: "We are aware of the allegations and are liaising with partner agencies to safeguard vuln

    The midwife leading a review into failings by Nottingham's maternity services said the scope was wider than the UK's biggest maternity scandal. Donna Ockenden previously led the review at Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust that found failings led to the deaths of more than 200 babies. The terms of reference for the review in Nottingham were set out on Tuesday. A category of severe maternal harm has been added to include cases that did not lead to a death or injury. Earlier this year Ms Ockenden completed her inquiry into the UK's biggest maternity scandal at Shrewsbury and Telford

    Scope of the review The terms of reference outline that the review will consider cases from 1 April 2012 to a time anticipated to be three months before publication of the final report.

Cases in the scope of the review will include clinical incidents where mothers and/or babies have suffered severe harm or death. The review will clearly and concisely set out to NUH an understanding of the elements of maternity care

    There was a fair bit of press coverage last week about an employment tribunal case against the Care Quality Commission – in which the regulator was found to have sacked an inspector for making a series of whistleblowing disclosures. However, many of the key details were either skirted over, or missed altogether, in the coverage. The disclosures made by Shyam Kumar related not just to his role as a special adviser for the CQC, but also to his full-time employer, University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay FT, and to understand the case fully, they need to be separated out. The importan
