OBJECTIVES: Medical errors are the manifestation of the defects occurring in medical processes. Extracting and identifying defects as medical error factors from these processes are an effective approach to prevent medical errors. However, it is a difficult and time-consuming task and requires an analyst with a professional medical background. The issues of identifying a method to extract medical error factors and reduce the extraction difficulty need to be resolved. METHODS: In this research, a systematic methodology to extract and identify error factors in the medical administration process was proposed...

OBJECTIVE: Early warning systems (EWSs) are an integral part of processes that aim to improve the early identification and management of deteriorating patients in general wards. However, the widespread implementation of these systems has not generated robust data regarding nurses' clinical performance and patients' adverse events. This review aimed to determine the ability of EWSs to improve nurses' clinical performance and prevent adverse events among deteriorating ward patients. METHOD: The PubMed, CINAHL, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library databases were searched for relevant publications (January 1, 1997, to April 12, 2017)...

OBJECTIVES: Following institution of a hand hygiene (HH) program at an academic medical center, HH compliance increased from 58% to 92% for 3 years. Some inpatient units modeled early, sustained increases, and others exhibited protracted improvement rates. We examined the association between patterns of HH compliance improvement and unit characteristics. METHODS: Adult inpatient units (N = 35) were categorized into the following three tiers based on their pattern of HH compliance: early adopters, nonsustained and late adopters, and laggards...

BACKGROUND: The problem list is critical in electronic documentation. It is a powerful tool for clinical decision-making because it provides a concise view of all patient problems in one place and is also a criterion for the Medicare meaningful use incentive program. OBJECTIVE: To measure the rate of utilization of problem list in electronic health records (EHR) in a pediatric hospital medicine unit and implement sequential interventions to increase the rate of use of problem list to more than 80% by the end of 2015, as measured by at least one documented hospital problem at discharge...

OBJECTIVES: Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) is the public primary health care provider in Qatar. Having a patient safety culture (PSC) is the keystone to enabling a continuous process to improve the quality of services and to reduce errors. The objective of this study was to assess the impact of accreditation, quality improvement trainings, and patient safety (PS) trainings on the improvement of the PSC at the PHCC in Qatar. METHODS: The Medical Office Survey on Patient Safety Culture from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality was used in 2012 and 2015 to assess the culture of PS and health care quality in the 21 health centers...

OBJECTIVES: Medical malpractice is burdensome to the U.S. healthcare system. The following is an epidemiological analysis of the closed medical professional liability (MPL) claims in pediatric orthopedics using data maintained by the Physician Insurers Association of America. METHODS: The Physician Insurers Association of America registry of MPL claims from 1985 to 2013 for all specialties included 286,021 closed claims in the United States. All closed MPL claims for orthopedic surgery in patients younger than 18 years were retrospectively reviewed (N = 2,671)...

OBJECTIVES: Performing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in neurocritically ill patients is challenging because it often requires sedation and withholding care in the neurological intensive care unit. This study investigated the incidence of and reasons for failed or complicated MRI (MRI-FC) in such patients. METHODS: A consecutive series of 218 neurocritically ill patients who underwent brain MRI were retrospectively evaluated. Failed or complicated MRI included failure to obtain all ordered sequences, unscheduled sedative administration, decrease in oxygen saturation to less than 90%, hypotension (≥40-mm Hg decrease and/or use of inotropic agents), and cardiac or respiratory arrest...

OBJECTIVES: The primary aim was to measure resident safety culture in six nursing homes in northern Belgium (Flanders). In addition, differences in safety culture perceptions between professions were also examined. Finally, results of the present study were compared with the Nursing Home Comparative Database from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (USA).

OBJECTIVES: Italy is experiencing a crisis of malpractice litigation with important repercussions on the insurance industry (e.g., lower profits), physicians (e.g., defensive medicine), and the courts (e.g., work backlog, lengthy proceedings). We searched for common ground between legal systems in Italy and the United States and considered the implications for international collaborations in patient safety. METHODS: We examined the judicial frameworks of medical malpractice litigation in two countries with different legal foundations: the United States (a public-private system governed by common law) and Italy (a publicly financed healthcare system governed by civil law)...

BACKGROUND: Polypharmacy (PP) and excessive polypharmacy (EPP) are increasingly common and associated with risk of drug-drug interactions (DDIs). We aimed to measure the trends and determinants of PP and DDIs among patients discharged from the Department of Internal Medicine of the Lausanne University Hospital. METHODS: The retrospective study included 17,742 adult patients discharged between 2009 and 2015. Polypharmacy and EPP were defined as the concomitant prescription of five or more and ten or more drugs, respectively...

Rashi I Mehta, Rupal I Mehta
Hydrophilic polymers are ubiquitously applied as surface coatings on catheters and intravascular medical technologies. Recent clinical literature has heightened awareness on the complication of hydrophilic polymer embolism, the phenomenon wherein polymer coating layers separate from catheter and device surfaces, and may be affiliated with a range of unanticipated adverse reactions. Significant system barriers have limited and delayed reporting on this iatrogenic complication, the full effects of which remain underrecognized by healthcare providers and manufacturers of various branded devices...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to develop standards for tracking patient safety gaps in ambulatory care in safety net health systems. METHODS: Leaders from five California safety net health systems were invited to participate in a modified Delphi process sponsored by the Safety Promotion Action Research and Knowledge Network (SPARKNet) and the California Safety Net Institute in 2016. During each of the three Delphi rounds, the feasibility and validity of 13 proposed patient safety measures were discussed and prioritized...

OBJECTIVES: The aims of the study were to identify perceived barriers and facilitators to central venous catheter (CVC) insertion among healthcare providers and to understand the extent to which an existing Simulation-Based Mastery Learning (SBML) program may address barriers and leverage facilitators. METHODS: Providers participating in a CVC insertion SBML train-the-trainer program, in addition to intensive care unit nurse managers, were purposively sampled from Veterans Administration Medical Centers located in geographically diverse areas...

INTRODUCTION: Patient misidentification continues to be an issue in everyday clinical practice and may be particularly harmful. Incident reporting systems (IRS) are thought to be cornerstones to enhance patient safety by promoting learning from failures and finding common root causes that can be corrected. The aim of this study was to describe common patient misidentification incidents and contributory factors related to perioperative care. DESIGN AND SETTINGS: We retrospectively analyzed IRS data reported by healthcare workers from a large academic hospital federation from 2011 to 2014...

OBJECTIVES: General anesthesia or sedation can facilitate the completion of diagnostic radiological studies in children. We evaluated the incidence, predictors, and causes of adverse events (AEs) when general anesthesia is provided for diagnostic radiological imaging. METHODS: Deidentified data from 24 pediatric tertiary care hospitals participating in the Wake-Up Safe registry during 2010-2015 were obtained for analysis. Children 18 years or younger receiving general anesthesia for radiological procedures were identified using Current Procedural Terminology codes, and reported AEs were analyzed if they were associated with anesthetic care at magnetic resonance imaging or computed tomography locations...
