Health Care Trends (04/2007): Patient Safety: Where's the Progress?

Executive Summary

Despite the many safety initiatives introduced to the healthcare industry in the last 10 years, the number of patient safety incidents at hospitals are not declining dramatically. In fact, the opposite is true: from 2003 to 2005, patients safety incidents were up almost 3% in U.S. hospitals, and resulted in $8.6 billion in excess hospital costs.
