    The US-based Leapfrog Group is a nonprofit organisation that routinely gauges hospital performance to inform purchaser choices as they navigate the healthcare system. While there are discussions on the value of the ratings ... they still pack a punch for organizations who do or don't do well. The latest set of numbers are out: Megan Brooks. One Third of US Acute-Care Hospitals Get 'A' on Patient Safety: Survey - Medscape - Nov 07, 2019.

    Dear All Please excuse my ignorance, especially if I am failing to see or understand something that is so glaringly obvious! However, I wondered if any of you, my esteemed colleagues, would be able to assist me with a conundrum that I currently face: Number of incidents occurring per 1,000 bed days My questions: What does this actually mean, and how is this useful exactly? How do you know if the sum of a bed days calculation is good or bad? How can this sum be used to quantify/understand incidents that occur within an outpatient setting (or a setting that does not involve bed days)? For example, if we say that an organisation has 5,910 incidents and a bed days figure of 171,971, we would then need to calculate 5,910 / 171,971 x 1000 = 34.36. As the NRLS uses the 'metric', incidents by 1000 bed days, to write a report which includes this sum for your organisation, and that of your "cluster" (other organisations that are 'supposedly' similar to yours), what does this sum actually signify and how can this be used to try and compare yourself to other service providers?

    The debate around the presence of medical error in healthcare today still solicits debate. While it is agreed that one death due to medical error is too many, Mazer and Nabhan in this perspective discuss the intense interest by the media and others in numbers that are shared – whether they are accurate or not. They suggest instead that the focus of discussion and interest should not be solely on how many... but the "why."

    Effective communication is critical to successful large-scale change. Yet, in our experience, communications strategies are not formally incorporated into quality improvement frameworks. The 1000 Lives Campaign was a large-scale national quality improvement collaborative that aimed to save an additional 1000 lives and prevent 50 000 episodes of harm in Welsh health care over a two year period. This research, published in the Journal of Communication in Healthcare, used the campaign as a case study to describe the development, application, and impact of a communications strategy embedded in a large-scale quality improvement initiative.

    On 20 March 2018 NHS Improvement launched an engagement programme to seek views from a wide range of stakeholders about how and when patient safety incidents should be investigated. Often those affected by incidents are not appropriately supported or involved in the investigation process; the quality of investigation reports is generally poor; and improvements to prevent the recurrence of harm are not effectively implemented. To obtain views on the problems with the current approach to the investigation of Serious Incidents, the issues driving these problems, and how such issues might be resolved, NHSI ran an online survey, national workshops and a live twitter chat, and held discussions with many individuals including patients, families, NHS staff, regulators and others. This document summarises the feedback received.
