    This framework highlights the following five dimensions, which the authors believe should be included in any safety and monitoring approach in order to give a comprehensive and rounded picture of an organisation’s safety: Past harm: this encompasses both psychological and physical measures. Reliability: this is defined as ‘failure free operation over time’ and applies to measures of behaviour, processes and systems. Sensitivity to operations: the information and capacity to monitor safety on an hourly or daily basis. Anticipation and preparedness: the ability to antic

    As many as 250,000 people die every year because they are misdiagnosed in the emergency room, with doctors failing to identify serious medical conditions like stroke, sepsis and pneumonia, according to a new analysis from the US federal government. The study by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality estimates roughly 7.4 million people are inaccurately diagnosed of the 130 million annual visits to hospital emergency departments in the United States. Some 370,000 patients may suffer serious harm as a result. Researchers from Johns Hopkins University analysed data from two deca

    Although estimated ED error rates are low (and comparable to those found in other clinical settings), the number of patients potentially impacted is large. Not all diagnostic errors or harms are preventable, but wide variability in diagnostic error rates across diseases, symptoms, and hospitals suggests improvement is possible. With 130 million U.S. ED visits, estimated rates for diagnostic error (5.7%), misdiagnosis-related harms (2.0%), and serious misdiagnosis-related harms (0.3%) could translate to more than 7 million errors, 2.5 million harms, and 350,000 patients suffering potentially pr

    Key findings Local host responses to polypropylene (PP) used in surgical mesh included pain, foreign body sensation, seroma and haematoma. When PP mesh was used in other surgeries (female stress urinary incontinence mesh or mini-sling, transvaginal or transabdominal prolapse mesh), the primary local responses were erosion/exposure followed by dyspareunia and pain. Studies reported these complications from immediately post surgery to five years post surgery. Evidence suggested that lightweight PP mesh was less likely than heavier weight PP mesh to cause pain or foreign body sensati

    The data included in the review identified that 10% of patients experience a PSI in prehospital care. The review also provides more detailed insights into the prevalence of PSIs and associated harm in prehospital care, and the authors argue that this evidence justifies giving the same level of attention to patient safety in prehospital care as is given to secondary care. They also state that the review gives direction as to how to advance methods for identifying PSIs and harm in prehospital care.

    This review examined 21 sets of data on skin lesions, including more than 100,000 images. The findings of the review highlighted that many of the datasets were missing important information, such as how images were chosen to be included and evidence of ethical approval or patient consent. 14 of 21 datasets gave information on which country they came from and, of those, nine contained images from European countries. The review notes that only a small percentage of images were accompanied by information about the patients’ skin colour or ethnicity. Among pictures where skin colour was
