A report from the Health Foundation highlights the proactive efforts made by nurses to improve patient safety. The report includes
“•The NHS Safety Thermometer – how nurses can measure data to influence harm-free care for patients.
•Concierge service for ward sisters – how ward sisters have freed up time for patient care by delegating administrative tasks.
•Reducing insulin errors – how a chart and poster have helped staff to reduce medication errors.
•Safer Clinical Systems – how a pilot scheme to influence the quality of handovers is improving the resulting care.”
