A new report from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality consolidates the latest evidence on 47 patient safety practices to help hospitals, primary care practices, long-term care facilities and other providers target and focus their patient safety efforts. “Before clinicians commit to implementing a patient safety practice, they want to know that they won’t be wasting their precious time and resources,” said Jeffrey Brady, M.D., director of AHRQ’s Center for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety. “This report provides information the field needs to evaluate how to prioritize efforts to keep patients safe.”
