ECRI Institute has published its top 10 Patient Safety Risks for 2012. Alarm hazards, medication administration errors using infusion pumps, caregiver distractions due to smartphone and mobile phone use, and surgical fires all make the list in addition to others.
ECRI provides an explanation of the risks as well as recommendations to mitigate the hazards. Mishaps caused by these risks can happen at any hospital on any given day. The Center for Patient Safety encourages hospitals to actively participate in the Center’s Patient Safety Organization (PSO) so we can safely discuss these as well as other unsafe conditions.

The Missouri Center for Patient Safety is pleased to announce our launch of the Center for Patient Safety.

An upcoming press release will announce this exciting change! We hope that you will join us in celebrating the next phase of this important work as we reinforce and expand our PSO, culture, education and other resources and services nationally.

Additionally, if you haven’t yet done so, join us on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook.
It truly takes a broad community of dedicated individuals and organizations to continuously push toward improving the quality and safety of care and eliminating patient harm. We hope you will continue to join us in this crusade!
