Error Reduction in Health Care: A Systems Approach
to Improving Patient Safety
Patrice L. Spath
An essential guide that brings to light the causes of medical mistakes and offers level-headed advice
for leaders who must reduce the number of errors when delivering health care services.
With patient safety becoming a national priority, health care professionals are scrambling to find ways
to curtail costly medical errors. Error Reduction in Health Care is a must-have resource that
pinpoints how to reduce and eliminate medical mistakes that threaten the health and safety of patients
and reduce the effect of the errors that do occur. It is a strategic guide that helps health care risk
and quality managers analyze the root cause of medical errors, implement strategies for improvement,
and monitor the effectiveness of these new approaches.
Error Reduction in Health Care is filled with illustrative examples of incident investigations
and process improvement recommendations from leaders in the field of health care quality and risk
management. With its step-by-step guide to operationalizing error reduction, this book should be
required reading for hospital administrators, senior medical staff, and concerned board members.
