Improving Patient Safety and Reducing Medical Errors: Case Studies of State Reporting Programs


The prevalence of medical errors has received enormous attention since late last year. Currently, government health agencies and private industry are devising strategies to identify and reduce mistakes made by doctors, nurses, and other health care workers that result in injury or death. Through extensive interviews and a comprehensive review of policies and regulations, this Picker Program Grant will study and evaluate medical error reporting systems currently used in four states. Findings will inform the development of effective solutions that could lower the incidence of mistakes.
