Safety Tip of the Month
A survey commissioned by the United Kingdom Department of Health found that after a patient safety incident 34% of people interviewed wanted an apology or explanation, 23% wanted an inquiry into the case, 17% wanted support in coping with the consequences, 11% wanted financial compensation, and 6% wanted disciplinary action. Research has shown that patients are more likely to forgive medical errors when the errors are discussed fully in a timely manner and that transparency can decrease the trauma felt by patients following an adverse event.
