Patient Safety Resources

A new Commonwealth Fund Patient Safety Resources page offers links to Fund materials, including a recent overview of findings from four case studies of hospitals with exceptionally low readmission rates and information about State Action on Avoidable Rehospitalizations (STAAR), a Commonwealth Fund–supported Institute for Healthcare Improvement initiative designed to help hospitals improve their processes for transitioning discharged patients to other care settings. Also be sure to visit to compare U.S. hospitals on several performance measures, including the incidence of bloodstream infections and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's Patient Safety Indicators.
