Medical errors and patient safety

Title: Preventable deaths due to problems in care in English acute hospitals: a retrospective case record review study.

Citation: BMJ Quality & Safety, September 2012, vol./is. 21/9(737-45), 2044-5415;2044-5423 (2012 Sep) Author(s): Hogan H, Healey F, Neale G, Thomson R, Vincent C, Black N

Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Monitoring hospital mortality rates is widely recommended. However, the number of preventable deaths remains uncertain with estimates in England ranging from 840 to 40000 per year, these being derived from studies that identified adverse events but not whether events contributed to death or shortened life expectancy of those affected.

Title: Exploring relationships between patient safety culture and patients' assessments of hospital care.

Citation: J Patient Saf. 2012 Sep;8(3):131-9. doi: 10.1097/PTS.0b013e318258ca46.

Author(s): Sorra J, Khanna K, Dyer N, Mardon R, Famolaro T.

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine relationships among 2 Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality measures of hospital patient safety and quality, which reflect different perspectives on hospital performance: the Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture (Hospital SOPS)-a hospital employee patient safety culture survey-and the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems Hospital Survey (CAHPS Hospital Survey)-a survey of the experiences of adult in patients with hospital care and services. Our hypothesis was that these 2 measures would be positively related.
