First, do no harm

By Frank Phillips

This phrase is a cherished one throughout healthcare, and a principle by which healthcare facilities and providers alike always seek to abide.

So, in 1999, when the Institute of Medicine published their now famous “To Err is Human” report, individuals and organizations both inside and outside of healthcare were shocked by the findings that an estimated 98,000 people a year die due to mistakes in hospitals. In the years since that report, much has changed in healthcare, but what about patient safety?

What is the scope of the problem, what progress has been made and what are the solutions? Take a look.
