Summary:

Despite the efforts of healthcare providers, medical error rates in communities, hospitals, and homes remain high. Patients and families pay for errors through disability and death. Preventable medical errors not only affect patients, family members, and healthcare providers, but also contribute to soaring healthcare costs. Errors emerge from a complex interaction of factorsc. The good intentions of healthcare providers are not enough to halt errors. They need to be well informed about when and where errors can occur. The reporting of medical errors and action plans to correct the problems have been increasingly on the national agenda. This activity will explore approaches to prevent medical errors that are both system-based and human performance-based and describe The Joint Commission National Patient Safety Goals as they pertain to medical errors in hospitals.
