Patient safety and quality of care remain among the biggest challenges to health-care organizations. Past research has looked at how the safety culture within a hospital setting can be improved. This paper uses a multi-level model to look at how direct and indirect factors can affect safety outcomes. The model shows that factors work in combination; teamwork and continual learning, support, adequate staffing levels, and making safety a priority at management levels all lead to improved patient safety and decreased risk.
The paper saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
