"A half of non-G8 medical equipment is unsafe"

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

At least 50% of medical equipment is unsafe. This is one of the stark claims underpinning a new World Health Organization initiative to improve patient safety. The statistic was delivered in reference to developing countries, but the initiative is intended as a truly global enterprise, with developed nations such as Canada, New Zealand and the UK having reported adverse event rates of around 10% of all hospital admissions.
