The role of respect in patient safety

A wide array of factors ultimately determines whether or not a patient will remain reasonably safe during his or her medical treatment. In general, patients have the right to a specific standard of care. When facilities or healthcare providers deviate negatively from this standard of care and patient safety is compromised as a result, the affected patient can generally hold any negligent parties accountable for the harm that he or she has suffered.

Even as patient safety improves, gaps remain

The federal Healthcare Agency for Research and Quality recently released a study concerning the state of hospitalized patient safety in the U.S. The report’s findings are promising. Specifically, the agency notes within the report that recent patient safety efforts have resulted in approximately 50,000 fewer fatalities caused by hospital-acquired conditions between 2010 and 2013.
