Download this market report that demonstrates how hospital safety events often go unreported and unresolved, resulting in unnecessary harm—and in some cases, avoidable deaths.
Built on our extensive survey of 100 hospital executives and clinical leaders, the report reveals that fewer than 40% characterize their organizations’ safety event reporting mechanisms as “very effective.”
Other key findings include:
- Hospital leaders say failure to report safety events in a timely manner is their second biggest safety problem
- Many hospital leaders describe low rates of event reporting and low rates of action taken to prevent future events.
- The low rate of reported and addressed events raises significant patient safety concerns.
- Hospital leaders say anonymous event reporting and automated event reporting can positively impact rates of reported events.
