Client:What Exactly Is Patient Safety?Linda Emanuel, MD, Ph.D.; Don Berwick, MD, MPP; James Conway, MS; John Combes, MD; Martin Hatlie, JD; Lucian Leape, MD; James Reason, Ph.D.; Paul Schyve, MD;Charles Vincent, MPhil, Ph.D.; Merrilyn Walton, PhDAbstractWe articulate an intellectual history and a definition, description, and model of patient safety. We define patient safety as a discipline in the health care professions that applies safety science methods toward the goal of achieving a trustworthy system of health care delivery. We also define patient safety as an attribute of health care systems that minimizes the incidence and impact of adverse events and maximizes recovery from such events. Our description includes: why the field of patient safety exists (the high prevalence of avoidable adverse events); its nature; its essential focus of action (the microsystem); how patient safety works (e.g., high- reliability design, use of safety sciences, methods for causing change, including cultural change); and who its practitioners are (i.e., all health care workers, patients, and advocates). Our simple and overarching model identifies four domains of patient safety (recipients of care, providers, therapeutics, and methods) and the elements that fall within the domains. Eleven of these elements are described in this paper.IntroductionA defining realization of the 1990s was that, despite all the known power of modern medicine to cure and ameliorate illness, hospitals were not safe places for healing. Instead, they were places fraught with the risk of patient harm. One important response to this realization has been the growth of interest in patient safety. It is increasingly clear that patient safety has become a discipline, complete with an integrated body of knowledge and expertise, and that it has the potential to revolutionize health care, perhaps as radically as molecular biology once dramatically increased the therapeutic power in medicine.Patient safety is now recognized in many countries, with global awareness fostered by the World Health Organization’s World Alliance for Patient Safety. And yet there continue to be significant challenges to implementing patient safety policies and practices. One fundamental requirement for adopting any new approach is a clear articulation of its premises and manifestations. Components of patient safety have been expressed by thought leaders, and models have been presented. However, a single rendition that can help a thorough adoption of patient safety throughout health care has not been available. This paper aims to offer that. After introducing salient points in the intellectual history of patient safety, we offer a definition, a description, and finally, a model of patient safety. We call on organizations to adopt a definition and model for patient safety.1

Intellectual History of Patient SafetyCritical assumptions in health care were rewritten by patient safety thinking. How to understand why people make errors that lead to adverse events shifted from a single cause, legalistic framework to a systems engineering design framework, and in so doing, it changed forever the way people think about health care delivery.Limiting BlameThe first quantum leap defined patient safety’s entry into health care thought. The realization that adverse events often occur because of system breakdowns, not simply because of individual ineptitude prompted the change. The traditional approach assumed that well-trained, conscientious practitioners do not make errors. Traditional thinking equated error with incompetence and regarded punishment as both appropriate and effective in motivating individuals to be more careful.The use of this kind of blame had a toxic effect. Practitioners rarely revealed mistakes, and patients and supervisors were frequently kept in the dark. Low reporting made learning from errors nearly impossible, and legal counsel often supported and encouraged this approach in1Thinking began to change in the 1990s in response to several kinds of new information. First, the medical injury was acknowledged as occurring far more often than heretofore realized, with most of these injuries deemed preventable. The second was the idea that “active” errors at the “sharp-end” —where practitioners interact with patients or equipment—result from “latent” errors, as3sharp end to make mistakes. To punish individuals for such mistakes seemed to make little sense since errors are bound to continue until underlying causes are remedied.Systems ThinkingThought leaders in health care offered persuasive arguments that errors could be reduced by redesigning systems and processes using human factors principles. These could reduce mistakes through design features, including standardization, simplification, and the use of constraints. One such constraint is a “forcing function,” which is a design characteristic that makes error impossible (e.g., incompatible connectors that prevent connecting an anesthetic gas to the oxygen port of an anesthesia machine).Another corollary quantum leaps to view health care as a system took place as people applied engineering design concepts to health care. Some of these systems changes were related to tools and technology, such as using better intravenous pumps or computerizing physician medication prescribing. Others were related to organizations and people, such as training doctors and nurses to work better in teams or including a pharmacist in the team during rounds. Some were moreorder to minimize the risk of malpractice litigation.2when failure did occur.This mind-set lent a wary, antagonistic backdrop to the therapeutic interaction.

successful than others, but the important change was that people were thinking of health care delivery in terms of systems.Interestingly, in earlier phases of medical history, different forms of systems thinking were dominant. However, these forms focused on the biologic systems within the individual patient, rather than on care and interactions between individuals in the environment of care. The notion of humor and the understanding of the circulatory system are two examples from the period prior to the modern scientific era. As the scientific era dawned and the field of medicine began applying the scientific method with success, systems thinking within physiology continued. Perhaps this was helpful, as clinicians took on a systems understanding of the delivery of health care as well.Initially, perhaps, blunt-end factors were typically thought of as organizational policies and processes that shaped the behavior of individuals at the sharp end-point of service. However, an awareness also emerged of extra-organizational blunt-end factors, including regulators, payers, insurance administrators, economic policymakers, and technology suppliers. These parties often influence and shape incentives and demands within the health care organization. Thus, health care had to be seen as an open, not closed, system, and policy too began to be thought of as a feature of the system.Transparency and LearningThe idea that adverse events could yield information was not new, but as it was newly applied in health care, it acquired a new potency. The notion that sharing information about medical errors was essential for effective patient safety outcomes became urgent. Commentators asserted that the more error-related information was shared, the better lessons could be implemented industry-Culture and ProfessionalismClinicians, governing boards, executive leaders, and middle managers of health care delivery organizations were being increasingly encouraged to think in terms of building high-reliability organizations. This required a culture change to one that refrained from assigning “sharp-end” blame for mistakes; that incentivized learning by fully disclosing information about mistakes, failure, and near misses; that trained and provided support to clinicians involved in inherently5, 6These transformations in thinking resulted in approaches that were remarkably well-rooted in the essential ethical underpinnings of the profession. The call for safety went directly to the central medical professional imperative to “above all, do no harm.” The value at issue was nonmal feasance.

Accountability for Delivering Effective, Safe CareEarly Western medical traditions were organized through guilds that kept the special knowledge10of dubious foundation, rarely beneficial, and frequently harmful, the challenge of securing the11In an important parallel development, as treatments became increasingly effective, the medical field began to establish methods for accountability, and the profession’s credibility in society rose. The scientific method was essential in that development, and with good reason, medicine has adhered to it. The three-phase approach to establishing the efficacy and safety of new medical therapies—Phase 1, clinical trials to assess safety; Phase 2, clinical trials to ascertain efficacy; and Phase 3, trials to compare it with another standard intervention—was essential, too. The dependence on the randomized clinical trial as the touchstone of the scientific method was critical to that process. The goal was to be sure that medicine was, and was seen as a clinical research-driven, reliable practice. The effort was successful; society recognized that medicine merited its standing as a profession with specialized expertise to use powerful methods applied appropriately. Consequently, these scientific and clinical research methods and their associated ways of thinking became well entrenched.The growth of medical sciences also changed standards in medical education, licensure, and peer review. The early apprenticeship model was supplemented by requirements for a phase in which didactically acquired knowledge was transmitted prior to the apprenticeship. As specialties developed, these sought to codify and legitimize their expertise through testing and certification. With the development of safer and more effective surgery, medical care delivery systems began focusing on hospitals; standards for these delivery systems were understood to be necessary. Certification of hospitals and other health care delivery systems followed, often with professional groups, such as the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the Joint Commission, serving quasi-government oversight and public protection roles.The nascent realization that health care, including the clinician and other components, also needed to be accountable for learning from error was harder to grapple with. Faltering moves were made toward tort reform and institutional accountability for safety practices. A model for accountability of clinicians that included accountability for continuous learning set the stage for but stopped short of, a full rendition of what accountability for understanding and optimally designing safe health care systems required.Health Care as an IndustryBeginning in the first half of the 20th century, the industrial era phased into the service industry era. Systems thinking was an established part of industrial engineering and applied in production lines and service industries. Yet medicine maintained a separation from these changes. This may have been possible mainly due to medicine’s standing as a revered profession with a privileged and skills involved in medical practices a secret.At a time when many medical methods werethe trust of society was significant.concepts of negligence developed, emphasizing litigation to deter substandard behavior and individual accountability for procedures and actions causally linked to adverse outcomes became embedded in both medicine and law.The primary method was to root out the charlatans. As modern4

relationship to society, but in part, it also may have occurred because both providers and patients protected the one-to-one model of the doctor-patient relationship. Thus, the health care paradigm remained focused on the patient-physician relationship and on a therapy’s point of application, rather than on the systems of application. The practitioner was trained and certified to apply therapy at the point of the illness-causing disorder. Even in the more expansive bio-psychosocial model, safety-oriented systems thinking was missing, even though the roles of the patient’s immediate relationship circle and of the community and society were acknowledged.Rising and apparently uncontrollable health care costs, coupled with increasing evidence of poor quality, ushered in the managed care era, along with demands from the public for accountability. Additionally, increased media exposure to preventable medical errors raised troubling questions that propelled a search for new solutions. Leape’s earlier publication of the theoretical possibility12Thought leaders from medicine and policymakers began to carve a new way of understandingrisk, new ways to reaffirm relationships with patients, and a new way of addressing the shockingrealities that epidemiologic studies, such as Leape’s 1994 landmark study, Error in Medicine,12Emphasizing Teamwork as Well as Dyadic RelationshipsEarly attempts at systems change revealed one Achilles heel of implementation: dysfunctional relationships between clinicians and other workers. Mirroring some of the developments in aviation—in which a focus on teamwork complemented attention to the refinement of mechanical systems—health care began to recognize the importance of team functioning, particularly for communicating across authority gradients. Training in teamwork became a foundational building block for the new field of patient safety.The discipline of patient safety rejected the concept of health care delivery as an exclusive dominion of the medical profession over the patient-physician relationship. The vision was more inclusive and demanding. It included patient-centered care and the biomedical model, and it focused on interdisciplinary teams and families. It also included the technical and administrative aspects of health care delivery in a complex system.of applying industrial human-factors engineering concepts to health care,demonstration with Bates and colleagues6 of the utility of systems analysis in understanding medication error later that year, provided that new type of thinking.

Quality improvement and risk management had both developed as disciplines within health care, with an emphasis on health services delivery research and measurement. These and other developments produced a readiness for looking at what might be learned and adapted from other high-risk industries and complex organizations.A decade earlier, anesthesiology had made substantial improvements by5and the subsequent

Defining Patient SafetyAs the intellectual history of patient safety developed, it became increasingly important to define patient safety. Thought leaders began to examine their different assumptions. Is patient safety a way of doing things—i.e., a philosophy (with its own explanatory framework, ethical principles, and methods) and a discipline (with a body of expertise)? Or is it an attribute—i.e., a goal and a condition (being safe), a property that emerges from the system? Existing definitions seemed to vary on the question.Although the Institute of Medicine (IOM) defined safety as “freedom from accidental injury,” patient safety as a discipline or field of inquiry and action has not been fully defined to date in the major consensus statements of the organizations that have propelled its existence. Part of the challenge lies in distinguishing safety from a quality, a line that remains important to some while being dismissed by others as an exercise in semantics. In 1998, the IOM convened the National Roundtable on Health Care Quality, which adopted the following definition of quality that was widely accepted: “Quality of care is the degree to which health care services for individuals and populations increase the likelihood of desired health outcomes and are consistent with current professional knowledge.”13Health care quality problems were classified into three categories: underuse, overuse, and misuse, all of which the evidence shows are common. Misuse was further defined as the preventable complications of treatment. Although the IOM Roundtable was careful to distinguish misuse from error (the latter may or may not cause complications), the misuse category became a common reference point for conceptualizing patient safety as a component of quality.In 2006, Leape and Berwick observed that as attention to patient safety has deepened, the lines between the overuse, underuse, and misuse categories have blurred. “It seems logical,” they wrote, “that patients who fail to receive needed treatments, or who are subjected to the risks of unneeded care, are also placed at risk for injury every bit as objectionable as direct harm from a surgical mishap.”14The National Patient Safety Foundation identified the key property of safety as emerging from the proper interaction of components of the health care system, thereby leading the way to a15We use the following definition of patient safety:Patient safety is a discipline in the health care sector that applies safety science methods toward the goal of achieving a trustworthy system of health care delivery. Patient safety is also an attribute of health care systems; it minimizes the incidence and impact of and maximizes recovery from, adverse events.Its goal has been defined as: “[t]he avoidance, prevention, and amelioration of adverse outcomes or injuries stemming from the process of defined focus for patient safety, namely systems. care.”16Our Definition of Patient Safety6

This definition acknowledges that patient safety is both a way of doing things and an emergent discipline. It seeks to identify the essential features of patient safety.The Why, What, Where, How, and Who of Patient SafetyGoing farther with the definition, each of its components is expanded here to offer a deeper description of patient safety:Why does the field of patient safety exist? Patient safety as a discipline began in response to evidence that adverse medical events are widespread and preventable, and as noted above, that there is “too much harm.” The goal of the field of patient safety is to minimize adverse events and eliminate preventable harm in health care. Depending on one’s use of the term “harm,” it is possible to aspire to eliminate all harm in health care.What is the nature of patient safety? Patient safety is a relatively new discipline within the health care professions. Graduate degree programs are currently being introduced in recognition of patient safety as a discipline. It is a subject within health care quality. However, its methods come largely from disciplines outside medicine, particularly from cognitive psychology, human factors engineering, and organizational management science. That, however, is also true of the biomedical sciences that propelled medicine forward to its current extraordinary capacity to cure illnesses. Their methods came from biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics, among others. Applying safety sciences to health care requires the inclusion of experts with new source disciplines, such as engineering, but without any divergence from the goals or inherent nature of the medical profession.Patient safety is a property that emerges from systems design. Patient safety must be an attribute of the health care system. Patient safety seeks high reliability under conditions of risk. Illness presents the first condition of risk in health care. Patient safety applies to the second condition: therapeutic intervention. Sometimes the therapeutic risk is audacious, such as when a patient’s heart is lifted, chilled, cut, and sewn during cardiac transplantation surgery. Risk and safety are flip sides of the therapeutic coin.Patient safety demands the design of systems to make risky interventions reliable. Two tenets of complexity theory apply: First, the greater the complexity of the system, the greater is the propensity for chaos. Second, in open, interacting systems, unpredictable events will happen. The better the therapeutic design, the more resilient it is in the face of both predictable and unpredictable possible or impending failures, so they can be prevented or rescue can be17the nature of the culture among people operating in the system.Safety systems include the design of materials, procedures, environment, training, and Berwick and others have collaborated with Amalberti to apply Shewhart’s notion of statistical achieved.18patient safety discipline seeks systems that can move health care to higher and higher levels of safe care.Systems are categorized by their level of adverse events. Barriers to progression from one level to another are identified. Interestingly, leaders of high- reliability organizations in other industries view the level of adverse events in medicine as so high that many of them would consider the health industry as existing in a state of chaos. The quality or error levels to health care.7

Patient safety is a property that is designed for the nature of the illness. High-reliability design is a concept that was not originally developed for health care. However, health care has some essential features in common with how high-reliability design has evolved. While often complex and unpredictable, it can have the ultimate high-stakes outcome: preservation of life.A unique feature of patient care is its highly personal nature. Provision of care almost always requires health care workers to cross significant personal boundaries, both psychological and physical. To protect patient integrity, the health professions have developed codes of professional ethics that guide how best to provide health care without doing dishonor to the ill person. Patient safety designs must allow for these important restrictions, which include confidentiality, physical privacy, and others. At times, these needs conflict directly with the transparency and vigilance needed for optimal patient care, including safety.Another unique feature is the natural progression of the illness. By definition, when illness care begins, something has already gone wrong. Thus, in many medical situations, failure to provide the correct intervention causes harm to the patient. A missed diagnosis of meningococcal meningitis, for example, usually results in patient death. The patient safety discipline acknowledges the need to include harm due to omission of action, as well as the obvious harm due to actions taken.The vast diversity of possible etiologies and manifestations of illness makes systems design in health care a unique challenge. Nonetheless, the reality is that most conditions are common and of common etiology, which allows for optimal design, if not infallible outcomes. If most patients with a condition such as breast cancer are best treated according to protocol but some require off- protocol, tailored treatment, systems can be designed to meet that need for the majority of protocols with tailoring options.Patient safety is a property dependent on open learning. Patient safety has another inherent feature that derives directly from its dependence on errors and adverse events as a main source of understanding. It depends on a culture of openness to all relevant perspectives in which those involved in adverse events are treated as partners in learning. In this sense, patient safety espouses continuous cycles of learning, reporting of adverse events or near misses, dissemination of lessons learned, and the establishment of cultures that are trusted to not cast unfair blame. The patient safety field marries principles of adult education and effective behavioral learning with the traditional approaches of the medical profession. Known from its early days as the field that seeks to move “beyond blame” to a culture trusted by all to be just patient safety, patient safety pioneers have pushed for a much deeper understanding of the mechanisms of errors that often lie beyond the actions or control of the individual.Patient safety advocates turn away from the traditions of the guild in which social standing and privileged knowledge shielded practitioners from accountability. They also reject the defensive posture of old risk management approaches in which physicians and leaders of health care organizations were advised to admit no responsibility and to defend all malpractice claims, whether or not they were justified. Patient safety embraces organizational and personal accountability, but it also recognizes the importance of moving beyond blame in both its8

organizational and its personal dimensions, while maintaining accountability and integrity in interactions with patients and families who have suffered avoidable adverse events.Trustworthiness is essential to the concept of patient safety. The health care system designed for patient safety is trustworthy. This is not because errors will not be made and adverse events will never happen, but because the health care system holds itself accountable for applying safety sciences optimally. Patient safety (as an attribute) prevents avoidable adverse events by paying attention (as a discipline) to systems and interactions, including human interactions, and allowing learning by all parties from near misses and actual adverse events. Through a concerted, conscientious effort, all those involved acts to minimize the extent and impact of unavoidable adverse events by creating well-designed systems and well-motivated, informed, conscientious, and vigilant personnel, and by seeking to repair damage honestly and respectfully when it occurs.Where does patient safety happen? The ultimate locus of patient safety is the microsystem. That is, the immediate environment in which care occurs—the operating room, the emergency department, and so on. It is in the microsystem where the “sharp-end” resides, where patient-caregiver interactions occur, where failures of safety emerge, and where patients are harmed. Breaches in safety may have occurred in many blunt-end components, and as described above, events constitute properties of interacting components of the overall system. Therefore, patient safety is irreducibly a matter of systems. Nonetheless, as the setting where the patient receives health care, the microsystem is the locus where the successes or failures of all systems to ensure safety converge.At the same time, patient safety must be concerned with the entire system. Importantly, patient safety recognizes that the microsystem is inherently unpredictable. Although it takes a mechanistic view of causation, patient safety acknowledges that each microsystem is open in that it can be influenced by another microsystem. This may result in something unpredictable. Thus, for instance, the microsystem of concern in surgical safety might be the operating suite, but if a local emergency demands that two members of the surgical team leave the operating room, the microsystem has been unpredictably affected.How is patient safety achieved? A number of mechanisms are involved in achieving patient safety, including:High-reliability design. The fundamental mechanism by which patient safety can be achieved is a high-reliability design, which includes many components. Thus, the irreducible unit of patient safety delivery is multifaceted; all components of health care delivery must be integrated into a system that is as reliable as possible under complex conditions.A unique feature of high-reliability design comes from complexity theory, which notes that open, interacting systems will produce some level of chaos or inherently unpredictable events. High- reliability designs are resilient even when unpredictable events occur.Additional design features that guide health systems engineers include the “lean process” and a notion of breaking through reliability boundaries in leaps from one safety level to another. These9

levels of reliability are often known as sigma levels—through the use of simplified and better processes.The concept of a multilayered system, in which the failures within each of the layers must be19Error traps (i.e., unpredictable situations in which error is highly likely) are another vivid concept on which safety sciences focus. The notion is that health care delivery is not only complex; it is also an open interacting system, in which illness is also a given, so the opportunities for making errors are many and endemic. Health care workers and health systems designers must, therefore, take this into account.Safety systems design in health care is early in its development. Practical approaches to design for safety have been pioneered by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and the World Health Organization’s (WHO) World Alliance for Patient Safety (see also “Applying the Patient Safety Model,” below), among others. For instance, patient safety designs can be thought of as falling into two types: those that are for types of routine care that vary little and can best be managed with protocols allowing for little deviation, and those that are for unique situations where on-the-spot innovation and significant deviation from protocol are required.Safety sciences. The term “safety science” refers to the methods by which knowledge of safety is acquired and applied to create high-reliability designs. The objective is to design systems that approach “fail-safe” conditions—i.e., those that ensure proper execution. The ideal design is one in which the operator cannot perform the function improperly. Short of that ideal, much of the effort in the past has been directed toward developing defenses, which are barriers that prevent an unsafe act from resulting in harm. Over the years, health care has developed many of these barriers, and usually several must be breached for patient harm to occur.The acquisition of objective knowledge is a matter of science. Patient safety uses methods that are appropriate to the purpose, and these can be drawn from a range of disciplines. Some, such as understanding human error, come from human physiology and psychology. Some, such as systems analysis and quality improvement, come from engineering and management. Others, such as organizational behavior, come from the social sciences. Still, other methods come from health services research. The disciplines that contribute to safely use the methods that are appropriate to each field. These include controlled experiments, repeat tests, and other traditional scientific methods. Human factors engineering is built on, as appropriate, randomized controlled trials of human performance, anthropometry, anatomy, physiology, physics, and mathematics.A strong claim can be made that although safety sciences are scientifically grounded, the fundamental drive toward and the cutting edge of inquiry in patient safety uses the narrative; i.e., the stories of adverse events yield insights and drive adjustments. Stories provide pattern recognition for patient safety practitioners. Stories of patient safety, like other stories, are aligned for an error to occur, is known as the “Swiss cheese” model of accident causation. components that make up the system include the institution and its organization, the professional team and the individuals it includes, and the technology in use.10The

specific and yet have insights that can be applied to other settings. This feature is well suited to20Importantly, however, one of the founding contributors to the safety sciences had a critical reason and unique standing to claim the term “science” for the safety sciences. Philosopher Karl Popper—famous for his work in defining the scientific method—working with MacIntyre, identified error (and by extension, one can include systems failures more generally) as analogous21The patient safety discipline uses an analogous cycle—observation, design, testing, then use—as its method, and system adjustment is based on analyzing how adverse events came about. This,in turn, is based on Deming’s assertion that making a change is a key source of knowledge forTo understand how human performance slips up, psychology, physiology, or social science must be used. To understand how a machine fails, engineering methods must be used. Each method must be used with its full insistence on rigor so that the new knowledge is as reliable and objective as possible. However, in contrast to the application of the scientific method in the physical sciences, for ethical and practical reasons, inpatient care there rarely can be a control or a repeat of the same event to check for reproducibility, except in a simulated environment. Nonetheless, when the analytic method has yielded to the best of its capacity a new insight, then this—like the new data in the process of science—generates a new cycle of adjusted design, testing, and use. In short, the analytic method must be unique to the adverse event, but then the safety sciences use the insight generated to create a new cycle of improved understanding and system design.In short, patient safety applies to many methods and techniques. However, two analytic methods have become widely associated with the field. One is retrospective. The analysis of what went wrong when an adverse event has occurred is known as “root cause analysis” (RCA). Perhaps the close identification (probably excessively so) of patient safety with RCA is a result of heightened attention that occurs after a bad event. RCA is an approach to finding out what underlying features of a situation contributed to an adverse event. Adopting the idea that the immediate cause of an event is almost always the end result of multiple systems failures, RCA seeks, by review of data and interviews, to identify and understand all contributing causes in order to redesign the systems to make them safer in the future.The other characteristic method of patient safety is prospective. Attempting to anticipate and prevent adverse events through safety design is known as “failure modes and effects analysis” (FMEA). FMEA is an engineering approach, usually taken early in the development of a product, that seeks to imaginatively identify potential failures and their effects. Knowledge from past failures might contribute to a designer’s ability to foresee potential failures in their design.the need for dealing with events that might be either familiar or entirely unpredictable.to data that refutes a hypothesis in the scientific method.use as their core method a cycle that comprises observation, hypothesis generation, testing, and hypothesis verification or alteration, depending on the results of testing. Deviation from this method causes the knowledge to be unreliable and the deviant methods to be discarded as unsound.22 safety sciences.systems.The rather close analog of method warrants the use of the term “science” in the11Sciences, such as chemistry or biology,

Designs are then adjusted to make failure less likely. FMEA is used in analyzing every aspect of a system’s design, including the system’s global functioning, its components and their interactions, the functioning of equipment, the programming of equipment, and the procedures for activities.Nevertheless, no one method is enough to produce a range of knowledge and types of understanding required for patient safety. In contrast to the clinical sciences in which the randomized controlled trial is the research method of choice, patient safety eschews the notion that the field can have confidence in a single “gold standard.” Inpatient safety, contributions are sought from engineering, social sciences, psychology, psychometrics, health services research, epidemiology, statistics, philosophy (theories of justice, accountability), ethics, education, computer sciences, and more. Each discipline uses its own particular methods; patient safety takes each on its own merits and selects the method most suited to the topic or question at hand.Measurement remains an important area for development in patient safety. Many needed measures have not yet been developed. The IHI talks of three types of measurement: process,23Methods for causing change. With its emphasis on making changes in health care workers’ actions, patient safety seeks to engage methods to bring about improvements that go beyond the transmission of knowledge and acquisition of skills to the effective implementation of appropriate skills. In this regard, patient safety builds on the insights and techniques of quality improvement. By its nature, a separation between the acquisition of new knowledge and service delivery is minimal.Rapid cycles of feedback and response methods for institutional improvement were pioneered in24systems of health care delivery more than on the medical issues and the knowledge that the rapid cycles produced are of the specific local system. The methods are designed to improve services in areas where a gap between acknowledged standards and actual practices exists. Usually, a guideline or protocol that has already been endorsed by an expert medical body or bundle of established practices is to be applied. The rapid cycles tend to keep the guideline or protocol or bundle the same, altering its application only to optimize its full use in the local system. Once the implementation is done, quality indicators are monitored to maintain new standards.Patient and family voice is important throughout. Adverse events are subjected to analysis, which feeds into a redesign or adjusted design of the systems of care. More traditional health services research and other methods of acquiring understanding are also fed into the recomposition of the systems.outcome, and balance.complete bundle of carefully selected procedures for a given clinical setting. Outcome measures might need to be developed for the particular outcome in question, but they might also need to be used in a fashion that has been developed to allow for balance—i.e., to look at the impact of the intervention in one place in the system on other places in the system.Process measures may need to be developed and validated for aThese processes are derived from continuous quality improvement methods originally designed by Deming22 and others. The methods focus on health care by Berwick and others.12

Dissemination of change is not a characteristic of the approach that uses rapid cycles or of the quality improvement more generally. This is in great part because the methods are designed to be tailored to the local system; therefore, they do not readily generalize, and measures of success might vary for the same reason. However, approaches that standardize measures and quality25Who is a patient safety practitioner? Most health-related disciplines are characterized by specialists who devote themselves to the full-time practice of the discipline. Similarly, patient safety is emerging as a specialty in which education at the masters’ level is offered and to which patient safety offices and patient safety officers devote their full-time effort.However, patient safety requires that all members of the health care service delivery team be “patient-safety minded.” It also depends on both hands-on patient safety practices and leadership within every discipline in health care. As a quintessentially collaborative activity, patient safety needs leaders in each area of clinical administration and in each clinical discipline—including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and others—in addition to information management, equipment and plant management, and other areas. Patient safety practitioners truly include everyone in health care.For those who have an advanced degree in patient safety or a role determined by patient safety, it could be a primary professional identity. For most, it will be a personal and professional commitment—a part of their identity, but not their primary identity, which will remain cardiology or plant management, etc. Nonetheless, since all in health care should acquire the characteristics needed for practicing safety, it is important to know what characteristics a patient safety practitioner (whether by primary or secondary identity) should have.What skills or unique characteristics should a patient safety practitioner possess? A professional who provides direct care needs to have a kind of wariness or patient safety vigilance. This quality is most often informed by a rich knowledge about adverse events and how to help avert them or minimize their damage. This kind of practical wisdom or “safety savvy” grows continuously from experience and an ability to recognize when something is not right. Often an adverse event that is about to unfold can be averted or its impact minimized if it is caught in action.Patient safety practitioners are well storied. The role of narrative in patient safety has been emphasized, both as a vehicle for acquiring safety-relevant knowledge and as a vehicle for26and rescuing patients from them. Reason envisions a future for patient safety in which its practitioners share many true stories of adverse events in their training and educational venues. He sees this as the normative method for making members of the health care community “safety-wise.” For example, studies of pediatric cardiac surgeons found that those surgeons—who were inclined to detect their errors and fix them, even at the price of having a longer and less elegant operation—had the best outcomes and reputations.improvement methods are being used, which will allow for better dissemination.more traditional campaigns to get individual health care sites to each do their own improvement work can be used, as has been done by the IHI.They understand that health care systems are full of “error traps,” and they are vigilant in foreseeing and preempting, mitigating,becoming, what Weick has called, mindful or safety wary.13Alternatively,20

Patient safety practitioners must also become excellent team members, whether they are natural leaders or better in other roles. They must be able to substitute for one another and appreciate the other’s perspective. Importantly, since vigilance is essential for patient safety and is also tiring,27A Patient Safety Model of Health CareWith the above aspects of patient safety lined up, it is possible to see a simple model of patient safety. While good models of patient safety have been constructed, we seek an overarching model that is simple, fully authentic to the subject matter, and compatible with the good existing models. At the same time, it should be simple enough that it can be seen in a readily sketched diagram and stated in a simple, short sentence that can be easily recalled. Only such a simple model can ubiquitously permeate the interstices of daily thought among all the necessary people throughout health care.We offer the following simple model with which to view patient safety. It divides health care systems into four main domains:• Those who work in health care.• Those who receive health care or have a stake in its availability.• The infrastructure of systems for therapeutic interventions (health care delivery processes).• The methods for feedback and continuous improvement.These four domains are represented graphically in Figure 1. Each domain interacts with the other domains and with the environment, as depicted by the semipermeable divisions (dotted lines) between them and at their outer edges. The result is a core, overarching model for patient safety.The model is consistent with the descriptors of patient safety stated above: What…? and Where…? correspond to the third domain, i.e., “Systems for therapeutic action.” How…? corresponds to the fourth, “the Methods”; Who…? corresponds to the first and second, i.e., “people who work in health care” and “people who receive it or have a stake in its availability.”The model is also consistent with existing frameworks of thinking that underpin patient safety. Each framework defines categories or elements that fall coherently within one or more of the four domains, as displayed in Table 1.working in teams during shift work is essential.14

All of these elements drive quality improvement, and they belong within the domain of “methods.”Donabedian divided health care into the structure, process, and outcomes for the purpose of28Vincent16 identified seven elements that influence safety:

Organization and management factors.Work environment factors.Team factors.Task factors.Individual factors.Patient characteristics.External environment factors.These factors distribute among the three domains: systems for therapeutic action, the people who work in health care, and the people who receive it or have a stake in its availability.Carayon and colleagues proposed a Systems Engineering Initiative for Patient Safety (SEIPS)29It is also a helpful way of categorizing the health system for the purposes of understanding how elements of the system interact. For this reason, the categories can be thought of as cutting across all four domains in the patient safety model.measurement.In the SEIPS model, elements are helpfully depicted with intersecting arrows that illustrate how the elements can interact with one another, so indicatinga model for design in health care. the notion of emergent properties.15

The above 11 elements do not represent an exhaustive list. In addition, elements can be subdivided into their content areas, which is not attempted here. For instance, external30The fashion in which this or any patient safety model applies must vary by setting as dramatically as the settings vary. The nature of the illnesses and social setting, the nature of the therapies, the nature of the human resources, and the nature of the physical infrastructure all will contribute to defining the very different systems. These systems must be analyzed and options identified for improvement. However, the fundamental concepts in any good patient safety model are applicable to most settings.What is the utility of this model and of the other models with which ours is built to be compatible? Our model and other models provide a way of seeing the component elements involved in patient safety and how they interact. So, when designing a system, improving a system, analyzing an adverse event, researching an issue, or measuring a new intervention, such models provide a ready map of matters that should be considered. Given the human tendency to limit the scope of focus, models provide a countervailing stimulus to include the whole universe of domains and their elements that could be involved in the patient safety issue at hand.ConclusionThe field of patient safety has emerged in response to a high prevalence of avoidable adverse events. However, many do not use a clear definition or have a clear model of understanding of the field. We call on organizations to adopt a definition and model for patient safety. To assist the process, we provide a definition and describe the nature of the field by going through each component in the definition. We identify its primary focus of action as the microsystem and its essential mechanisms as high-reliability design and the use of safety sciences and other methods for causing the improvement, including cultural change. We describe key attributes of those who practice safety, and we identify its practitioners as all involved in health care. To provide an easy-to-recall, overarching model of patient safety, we offer one that identifies four main domains of patient safety (1) people who receive health care, (2) people who provide it,(3) systems of therapeutic action, and (4) methods and elements within each domain. We hope that this description, definition, and model will assist in the integration of patient safety practices throughout health care.AcknowledgmentsWe appreciate the helpful comments of Ben-Tzion Karsh and the invaluable assistance of Maia Feigon, Andrew Harris, and Jonathan Masia-Peters.the environment has been divided into physical, social, and biologic areas.be categorized in different ways. For example, team factors could be included within the work environment. The purpose of this simple, broad model of domains is to capture the largest category of essential components in patient safety and their interaction with one another.16The elements can also

From cult to culture?Journal of Nursing Management, 2009, 17, 145–150As we move into the second quarter of 2009, the safety and reliability of healthcare have become a hot topic and a top priority. And rightly so, since unsafe healthcare creates an unacceptable Ôdouble whammyÕ effect. Firstly, it permanently damages lives and may even be lethal, and secondly, it wastes scarce health care resources at an alarming rate. Moreover, with central bankers worldwide using public money to bail out broken financial systems, and some governments doing the same for bankrupt industries, there simply isnÕt money to waste on unsafe health care practice anymore. Just as financial and industrial sectors in the global economy are facing severe challenges, so is health care, which must respond to become safe, effective, fairly distributed, and sustainable.The aim of this special edition is to provide readers with stimulating and thought-provoking papers addressing major theory and practice issues in patient safety, healthcare risk, and reliability. Risk and safety have risen to prominence in healthcare relatively recently, within the last two decades, moving from a marginal, almost, ÔcultÕ issue to international concern about patient safety culture. Reliability theory is the most recent addition to healthcare, emerging over the past 5 years. The complex clinical issues and their theoretical, methodological and practical dimensions span acute and community healthcare settings, individuals and organizations, and macro- meso- and micro-levels.Each paper not only provides essential information to assist nurse managers and leaders in maintaining safe practice but also connects with the other articles. We hope our authors, many of whom are nationally and internationally recognized as key contributors in the field, point the way towards solving these difficult issues. Moreover, as we move forward, published feedback from readers on this key topic is an important part of the debate, and very welcome, ranging from a 200-word letter upwards.The papers are presented in three sub-sections: patient safety, healthcare risk, and reliability. These explore the epidemiology of safety and risk, measuring risk and safety culture, management strategies, eco-nomics and education, and consider the underpinningDOI: 10.1111/j.1365-2834.2009.01000.xa 2009 The Authors.

Initially, we considered having regulation as a major theme for discussion but decided against this because much had already been published on the subject, and we felt that the rapidly emerging, progressive theme of reliability theory offered better potential. Some articles in this themed issue have been designated as free online, meaning that non-subscribers can access them, with our compliments.Safety during the patient journeyQuality, safety, and reliability levels in health care are not as high as they should be, and this is a fundamental concern to patients, healthcare practitioners, managers and policy-makers at all stages of the patient journey. Quality and safety vary and, despite the best intentions of the majority of healthcare practitioners, sub-optimal care is common, with unintended patient harm occurring frequently throughout the system. Reliability theory seems thinly applied with few centers of excellence.Nursing and nursing management has a primary role in ensuring patient safety. As in many other areas, nurse managers need to take a strong leadership role in implementing change, evaluating costs and benefits rigorously. Evidence demonstrating the importance of nursing inpatient care quality and safety is increasing. In 1999 the Institute of Medicine (USA) identified the importance of healthcare system design and interprofessional teamwork ( Institute of Medicine 1999). Their subsequent report ÔTo err is human: building a safer health systemÕ (IoM 2000) first identified patient safety errors as a policy and practice priority. The IOM later highlighted the role of nurses in patient safety (IoM 2004). Much earlier, Leape (1994) identified that nursingÕs frontline presence and vigilance protects patients from errors. Meanwhile, Aiken et al.Õs (2002) research linked higher numbers of patient deaths with fewer nurses providing care, and Needleman et al. (2002), Needleman & Buerhaus (2003) found higher rates of complications associated with reduced nursing time spent on actual patient care.In the UK the Department of Health Report: ÔAn Organization with a MemoryÕ (DoH 2000) emphasized145

Editorialthe need for organizational learning from Ôadverse incidentsÕ and Ônear missesÕ in the NHS. The aim was to change the NHS organizational safety culture from a ÔblameÕ culture to an open, learning culture. ÔBuilding a Safer NHS for PatientsÕ (DoH 2001) recommended the NHS ÔmodernizeÕ its approach to dealing with adverse events, and created The National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA) with the remit to promote patient safety and organizational learning, and establish and manage The National Incident Reporting System.ÔBuilding a Safer NHS for PatientsÕ (DoH 2001) also identified the important role of education and training in creating positive learning environments and open learning organizational cultures. The National Health Service Confederation Report (2003) ÔCreating the vir- tuous circle: patient safety, accountability and an open and fair cultureÕ advised that patient safety should be included in all courses. Educators were encouraged to promote and teach skills that are crucial to patient safety: interaction, leadership, teamwork and commu- nication. However, evidence about how patient safety is addressed in healthcare professional education and how organizations develop safe healthcare practitioners remains limited.Identifying, minimizing and managing risk in health careRisk, error, adverse events, and critical incidents are omnipresent, and undermine safety and quality. Healthcare is especially high-risk, if it uses complex systems which rely heavily on humans, to effect critical decisions in high pressure environments. The difficulty is that before errors can be minimized, the latent risk factors must be identified and managed.Responses to risk should be proactive rather than reactive; identifying and managing them before they impact adversely on individuals or organizations. However, risk prevention remains the ideal. Robust risk assessment and management policies have become a key component of organizational governance at all levels, and thus an everyday part of management practice. Organizations which succeed at this generate improved care quality, safety, efficiency and reliability, as well as reduced costs. In normal times, this may yield a com- petitive advantage under prospective reimbursement. In austerity it could be make-or-break.Debates about whether risk is more or less prevalent in contemporary society continue. The perception of risk and beliefs about its causation and prevalence are important as they drive how risk is defined, assessed and managed. Traditional approaches treat safety problemsand errors as individual failings, caused by inadequate knowledge or skills. This Ôbad appleÕ theory involves naming, blaming, shaming, retraining, and possibly dismissing individuals.Individual risk can be managed by standardization, mechanization and tight control over processes. Yet in health care, as the seven steps to patient safety docu- ment (NPSA 2003) suggests, the reality is different. The traditional approach fails in a number of crucial areas (NPSA 2003):• failing to take account of systems and complexity;• failing to acknowledge the high-risk, error-pronenature of organizational activities;• failing to facilitate the open reporting of errors andnear-misses;• failing to analyse errors and their causation; and• failing to learn from mistakes.So in order to analyse risk and safety management, it is necessary to first clarify its nature, scale and scope. The papers in the risk sub-theme cover the epidemiol- ogy of adverse events in healthcare (Brady et al. 2009), the nature of risk/safety problems in home care resi- dents in Canada (Doran et al. 2009), the risks of adverse drug reactions in Wales (Jordan et al. 2009) and risks during medication administration in Italy (Palese et al. 2009). It would be wrong to assume that these risks are exclusively the concern of healthcare organizations, managers and nurses in these countries. As Brady et al. (2009) show us, adverse events are universal phenomena, about which we have much more to learn.Doran et al. (2009) explore the epidemiology of safety and risk in a secondary data set of nursing home residents in Canada, comparing their results to recent similar studies, and finding that new falls, unintended weight loss, new emergency room and hospital visits, and urinary tract infections were the most prevalent adverse events. These methods and data make a useful contribution to the evidence, and help managers first identify potential safety risks and subsequently manage them.

Sample Solution
Pioneer part trade (LMX) centers around the interesting connection among pioneer and adherent. The point of this paper is to look into what job sex plays in these dyadic connections. Moreover, it is explored whether sex directs the connection between hierarchical citizenship conduct (OCB) and LMX. Writing on the theme is analyzed and assessed. The consequences of the examinations talked about are incredibly conflicting, and it is yet vague what the job of sexual orientation is in LMX connections. In any case, plainly sexual orientation doesn’t go about as a mediator among OCB and LMX. Impediments, suggestions, and recommendations for future research are talked about. In the course of recent decades, investigation into administration has developed quickly. An outstanding and broadly looked into initiative hypothesis is pioneer part trade hypothesis, additionally curtailed as LMX. While a great deal of hypotheses center around the job of the pioneer explicitly, LMX hypothesis centers around the connection among pioneer and adherent. It expresses that pioneers create special associations with their devotees, and that these connections influence different factors, for example, work execution and fulfillment. Besides, LMX connections appear to extend from low to high. A circumstance where a subordinate and a pioneer just agree to their commitments, would be viewed as a low-quality LMX relationship. An excellent LMX relationship goes past these commitments, and contains components of common trust and regard (Avolio, Walumbwa, and Weber, 2009; Breevaart et al., 2013). Going well beyond commitments of a vocation is known as authoritative citizenship conduct (OCB). Currall and Organ (1988) conceptualize the term as intentionally helping other people without essentially expecting more than their check. These laborers feel a specific promise to the association that goes past what is insignificantly anticipated from them and what is expressed in their agreement. Of course, OCB is considered to profit the association and add to authoritative viability (Organ, Podsakoff, and MacKenzie, 2006). Taking into account that the conceptualizations of great LMX connections and OCB both incorporate representatives “giving their each of the”, a connection between these two appears to be conceivable. A variable that is frequently looked into is numerous fields is sexual orientation. It appears to be productive to comprehend the job of sexual orientation in these viewpoints. It would broaden the writing and information on the point and add to the improvement of a more conceptualized model of authority. Investigating the job of OCB and the impact of sex appears to be applicable for comparable reasons. The fundamental research question that will be tended to in this paper is the accompanying: What job does sex play in LMX connections? So as to address this inquiry in enough detail, the accompanying sub-questions will be incorporated: How do pioneer and subordinate sexual orientation impact LMX connections? furthermore, Do pioneer and subordinate sexual orientation go about as a mediator in the connection among authority and hierarchical citizenship conduct? The point of this paper is to give a reasonable review of the as of now accessible writing on LMX connections and the job of sexual orientation and OCB. Both subordinate and pioneer sexual orientation will be tended to. With the assistance of this writing audit, the exploration addresses will be replied as completely and unmistakably as could reasonably be expected. To start with, the strategy will be examined, giving all the important data about how the writing was found and investigated. This strategy area will be trailed by an audit of the writing on LMX connections, the job of sexual orientation in these connections, and sex as an arbitrator for the connection among LMX and OCB. In the discourse, the discoveries of the investigations will be outlined and the examination addresses will be replied. Following this area, suggestions, restrictions, and future research recommendations will be talked about. This paper will end with a concise end. Technique An orderly writing search was done in Google Scholar. The terms utilized in the inquiry machine were “administration”, “LMX”, “sexual orientation”, and “OCB”. The outcomes were arranged by importance and not sifted by production date. The initial step of investigation was basically perusing the title. On the off chance that the title appeared to be significant to this survey, the subsequent advance was to peruse the theoretical. In the event that this showed the article would be of hugeness to the paper, the article was perused completely. A few papers referenced different papers, and these were not generally perused totally. In any case, some referenced data is remembered for the survey. Aside from clear (ir)relevance, no other consideration or prohibition criteria were considered. Generally speaking, 35 bits of writing were incorporated of which 19 were totally perused. Writing survey Pioneer Member Exchange Theory As per Graen and Uhl-Bien (1995), initiative research ought not put its attention on the pioneer as it were. They contend that administration comprises of three spaces: the pioneer, the adherent, and their relationship. This scientific categorization could be viewed as the establishment of LMX hypothesis, since the most differential part of the hypothesis is the accentuation that is laid on the pioneer supporter dyadic relationship. LMX suggests that pioneers don’t treat every one of their adherents similarly. They split their adherents into two gatherings: in gatherings and out gatherings. The devotees that are ordered into the in bunches are given additional time and consideration than those sorted into the out gatherings. Besides, the exhibition of in bunch individuals is frequently assessed as higher than that of out gathering individuals, and in bunch individuals appear to be progressively happy with their LMX relationship contrasted with out gathering individuals (Varma and Stroh, 2001). Researchers recommend that pioneers’ order into in and out gatherings is for the most part dependent on factors that are inconsequential to execution, and one of these is by all accounts sexual orientation (Graen, Liden, and Hoel, 1982; Dienesch and Liden, 1986). In the accompanying passages, the job of sex will be examined from alternate points of view. Sexual orientation generalizations In spite of various mindfulness crusades, women’s activist activities, and different endeavors at bringing greater correspondence onto the work floor, sexual orientation generalizations still assume a critical job in this world. The two people are regularly expected to act a specific way, and these desires can have more effect on their assessments than their genuine presentation as well as conduct. Eagly, Makhijani, and Klonsky (1992) found that ladies utilizing a despotic authority style were evaluated as less compelling than men utilizing a similar style. They clarify that absolutist authority practices are viewed as increasingly manly, and that male heads are viewed as more viable than ladies, in light of the fact that these practices appear “additionally fitting” for men, paying little mind to their genuine exhibition. Then again, ladies were evaluated more well than men while embracing a transformational initiative style, since this style is viewed as progressively female. These discoveries delineate how sexual orientation based desires assume a job in assessments of administration. Bosses are appraised higher when they agree to the desires for their sexual orientation. This idea is otherwise called job congruity hypothesis (Douglas, 2012). Goertzen and Fritz (2004) contend that the less activity related data that is accessible to a pioneer or subordinate, the more “space” is given to sex generalizations to impact the advancement of LMX connections. He additionally suggested that female heads are thought to have less access to assets when all is said in done, which brings about them being appraised lower on nature of LMX. This impact is biggest when ladies involve a job that is viewed as customarily manly, for instance the job of CEO. Carli (2001) found that ladies whose fitness was evaluated as profoundly as men’s, are viewed as not agreeing to their sex job. She additionally noticed that for the most part men regularly don’t recognize ladies’ commitments, particularly when they see incongruence between their obtained position and sexual orientation job standards. At the point when ladies figure out how to get to the highest point of a male-commanded association, they are frequently seen to have “beat” sexual orientation inclinations. Be that as it may, these ladies here and there accomplish such a situation by stressing how they contrast from their female associates, invigorating sexual orientation predisposition. These purported “sovereign honey bees” are found to have a low sex recognizable proof, and to separate themselves or all the more fundamentally assess their female associates or subordinates (Derks, Van Laar, Ellemers, and de Groot, 2011). Predictable with these outcomes, Adebayo and Udegbe (2004) contended that because of this sovereign honey bee disorder, the connection between female bosses and subordinates could be influenced contrarily. In their 2004 examination, they saw the female-female dyadic relationship as of the most reduced quality, contrasted with other dyad blends. Moreover, they saw male chief female subordinate connections as of the highest caliber. They clarify this outcome by the paternalism hypothesis, that expresses that ladies are viewed as kids and are to be ensured. This would make male chiefs be progressively indulgent towards their female subordinates, making an increasingly steady and in this way top notch LMX. Sexual orientation contrasts The previously mentioned research writing for the most part suggests an incorrectness of generalizations, as a few investigations show a disparity among assessments and real execution because of these generalizations. In any case, in spite of the way that they can be unsafe, generalizations can be exact (Hall and Carter, 1999; Jussim, 2018). A model: the generalization that ladies are increasingly delicate contrasted with men. In spite of the fact that it is improper to just affirm or disconfirm this announcement, since it is fairly dark or-white, there is by all accounts a reality to it. Sexual orientation examines have discovered that ladies are more relationship-arranged than men, and men are more undertaking focused than ladies. This goes for both their own life and vocation (Fairhurst, 1993; Varma and Stroh, 2001). Ladies are>GET ANSWER Let’s block ads! (Why?)
