    Although organisations are legally required to take ‘all reasonable and practical steps’ to improve safety, avoidable harm in healthcare continues to persist. In the UK, prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, there were 11,000 avoidable deaths annually due to safety concerns and over 400,000 incidents of patient harm. We don’t yet know the full implications that the pandemic has had on patient safety, but we know it has both magnified existing patient safety issues and created new ones. Patient Safety Learning believes that one of the primary reasons for the persistence of such shocking fi

The Standard will enable medicines information to be more efficiently shared between NHS and social care organisations, including primary and secondary care – from hospitals and GP practices to residential care homes, mental health trusts, and pharmacies. It will be particularly beneficial in reducing medication errors when patients transfer between care locati

    Inquiries from Bristol to Paterson have highlighted the complexity of the regulatory system and the risk of patient safety concerns falling between organisational boundaries. The Professional Standards Authority recognise that the professional regulators have done much to improve collaboration and the planned reforms to regulator powers and governance may support this. It is important that these reforms proceed regardless of what structural changes are taken forward. However, with reconfiguration now on the table, they believe wider changes are needed to simplify the system to improve pub

    Once upon a time there was a little boy. Let’s call him Albert. Little Albert had grown up in the hospitals until one day, when he was just 9 months of age, he was taken by a couple who gave him lots of interesting and friendly objects to play with. One by one, Albert was shown bunnies, puppies and little white rats amongst other fascinating objects. He was intrigued by these soft play things and enjoyed exploring the shapes and textures that were new to the enquiring infant. One day as he was about to play with his favourite rat, Houdini (poetic licence employed here), there came from be

    The standards are grouped into three themes. They are: Responsibility and accountability – outlining where the responsibility and accountability lie within an organisation for setting, reviewing, and taking decisions and action on staffing levels and skill mix.

    Nurses are a crucial part of care across a wide range of sectors, with patients and other professionals often reliant on their expertise. That’s why the Professional Records Standard Body (PRSB) has been asked to develop a new nursing standard by NHSx for use across all the different health and social care settings. The standard aims to improve quality and safety of care in key nurse-led areas, including care planning. It will reflect best practice and standardise documentation across different nursing settings, to free nurses and give them more time to care. For example, it will standar

    The eight principles are as follows: The purpose of measurement is to collect and disseminate knowledge that results in action and improvement. Effective measurement requires the full involvement of patients, families, and communities within and across the health system. Safety measurement must advance equity. Selected measures must illuminate an integrated view of the health system across the continuum of care and the entire trajectory of the patient’s health journey. Data should be collected and analysed in real time to proactively identify and prevent harm as o
