Quando os doentes morrem por erros…

Relacionado com número de profissionais abaixo do mínimo…
 

Porque é que isto ( o “sistema” não criar condições para reduzir erros) acontece?

Será normal a vida das pessoas valer tão pouco?

Ficam aqui umas “mini” conclusões dum estudo sobre segurança do doente, qualidade e cuidados no hospital:

Patient safety, satisfaction, and quality of hospital care: cross sectional surveys of nurses and patients in 12 countries in Europe and the United States

Conclusions and policy implications: 

Observations from our large study of different countries indicate that organisational behaviour and the retention of a qualified and committed nurse workforce might be a promising area to improve hospital care safety and quality, both nationally and internationally. Improvement of the hospital work environment can be a relatively low cost strategy on improved healthcare. Indeed, our research in the US showed that investments in better nurse staffing improved patient outcomes only if hospitals also had a good work environment.12 Best practices such as Magnet recognition are associated with successful organisational transformations.15 19

Our results suggest that the associations between nursing and the quality and safety of hospital care are remarkably similar across Europe and in the US, even if the aggregate levels of each measure vary between countries. Thus, efforts to improve hospital work environments and quality of care in any of these countries could be effective elsewhere. Almost every country had one or more hospitals that nurses ranked as having good work environments, suggesting that this success could be replicated in additional hospitals
