The drive for risk-based food safety management, systems and control has spread world-wide in recent decades. Since the term is still internationally undefined, its use and implementation vary, producing different realizations. In this Ph.D. thesis, microbiological risk assessment (MRA) was investigated as a basis for risk-based food safety management, which was defined as food safety management based on risk assessment in order to achieve an appropriate level of protection (ALOP). Governments are responsible for commissioning MRAs and also for setting food safety targets up to a certain point, but the practical management measures that need to be in place in order to achieve the targets are to be addressed by the operators. On the plant level, food safety is usually managed through regulation, quality assurance systems and a hazard analysis and critical control point (HACCP) programme with its prerequisites. In Finland, food safety management on the food plant level is implemented through an ...

I have been consulting in risk and safety in Adelaide for over 10 years and am often asked to help revitalise an organisations Safety Management System. Most people contact me about risk and safety issues but people rarely understand either what the problem is or where to start. So they start at systems and this seems to make sense.. An organisation that asked for help has 15 employees doing highly specialised work so they needed compliance to AS/NZS ISO 9001, 14001 and 18001, so they could operate with some Tier 1 building companies.. In my first meeting the questioning started with: What is a safety management system? What does it look like? and, How big does it have to be? There is nothing unusual here, this is generally where I start with small to medium businesses. Most often they simply want to comply but dont know where to start. One thing that stands out is and is common, is that people remain are confused by all the fear mongering and snake oil being peddled in the risk and ...

In order to improve the EU road safety and substantially reduce road deaths, several measures were taken at the EU level. A general policy document was adopted in 2010, when the European Commission published the Road Safety Programme 2011-2020. The current revision of the road safety management procedures was triggered by the fact that the progress in the reduction of road fatalities stalled and that the existing road security measures needed to be adapted to changes in mobility resulting from societal trends and technological developments. The impact assessment accompanying this proposal clearly explains the problems currently encountered, and proposes adequate solutions. The Commission used different sources to substantiate the impact assessment and also undertook several stakeholder consultation activities. However, some parts of the IA do not entirely follow the requirements of the Better Regulation Guidelines in that it does not set sufficiently specific and time-bound objectives. More detailed
Only 5-10% of serious incidents in the NHS with the potential to compromise patients safety are actually reported, MPs have been told.. Witnesses giving evidence to MPs on the parliamentary health select committee last week admitted that under-reporting of patient safety incidents was significant but defended the system.. Committee members, who were taking evidence for their inquiry into patient safety, asked witnesses from the Department of Health and the National Patient Safety Agency how much harm the NHS did to patients.. Martin Fletcher, the agencys chief executive, said that statistics from his organisations national reporting and learning system (covering England and Wales) for 2007-8 showed that 796 142 patient safety incidents were reported by staff, most of which (583 000) came from the acute … ...

Early in the patient safety movement, the US Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality commissioned a compendium of evidence reviews in order to identify promising patient safety interventions.15 Released in 2001 (an update will appear this year), this report met with some criticism from leaders in the patient safety field because of the priority given to very clinical interventions-strategies for reducing hospital-acquired infections, thromboembolism, perioperative complications, and so on-with much lower evidence ratings for patient safety strategies from high reliability industries or for information technology.16. The lead authors of that evidence report (including one of us) replied that clinical research studies related to patient safety were more numerous and rigorous than studies of computerised order entry, teamwork training, interventions to improve safety culture, and so on.17 The debate over which patient safety interventions to pursue came down to whether we ought to prioritise ...

Incident reporting should ideally communicate all information relevant to patient safety. Local incident reporting systems in hospitals typically use an incident form that comprises basic clinical details and a brief description of the incident; there may be a list of designated incidents that should always be reported. Such systems are ideally used as part of an overall safety and quality improvement strategy, but in practice they may be dominated by managing claims and complaints.1 Specialty reporting systems2 and large scale systems, such as that of the UK National Patient Safety Agency (www.npsa.nhs.uk/), allow wider dissemination of lessons learnt and emphasise the need for parallel analysis and development of solutions. In this weeks BMJ a case note review by Sari and colleagues finds that local reporting systems are poor at identifying patient safety incidents, particularly those involving harm,3 echoing the findings of similar studies.4 Does this mean that these reporting systems are of ...

The NHS has launched a website dedicated to the National Patient Safety Agencys (NPSA) cleanyourhands campaign, using Swebtecs enterprise content management system, expressCMS. The cleanyourhands campaign aims to combat Healthcare Associated Infection (HCAI), which currently affects eight per cent of acute admissions to hospital. These infections can lead to delays in patient discharge of 11 days, representing 3.6 million lost bed days for the NHS, with a projected cost of £1 billion a year. According to research, incidences of HCAI can be reduced by up to 50 per cent by improving infection control procedures within hospitals including hand hygiene. Integrated into the NPSAs main website, the cleanyourhands microsite was created in three days to support the NPSAs off-line marketing campaign. The NPSA was able to create the site following the rebuilding of its internet and intranet sites by Swebtec earlier this year. Based on the expressCMS platform, the NPSA can update and control content ...

St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital, an institution focused on pediatric cancer and other catastrophic diseases, treats nearly 8,000 patients annually and has used AHRQs Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture since 2009 to understand and improve the hospitals culture, identify areas ripe for quality improvement, and collect data on its own research projects.. The Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture Survey is a trusted tool that is used by over 1,000 hospitals and has been validated in many contexts and cultures, says James M. Hoffman, PharmD, the Medication Outcomes and Safety Officer at St. Jude. We believe the entire process of promoting the survey-participating, discussing, and sharing the results of the survey and then using the results to prioritize improvement efforts-helps us improve patient care.. AHRQs tool helps hospitals assess their patient safety culture, track changes, and evaluate the impact of patient safety interventions. Because we have used the survey ...
This database serves as a central repository for hospitals to report their results from the AHRQ Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture. Participating hospitals will be able to measure patient safety culture in their institutions and compare results with other sites.
This annually released report of the AHRQ Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture comparative database presents benchmarking data for safety culture from 653 hospitals nationwide, including trending data on changes in safety culture perception over time for more than 300 hospitals. The full report contains detailed comparative data for various hospital characteristics (type and size) and respondent characteristics (work areas, staff positions, and direct patient contact).
Mercy Health, one of the largest nonprofit health systems in the United States, has used AHRQs Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture and team training tools since 2005 to identify and monitor areas where it can improve patient safety. Mercy also uses the AHRQ resources to gain critical insights into opportunities to enhance safety culture efforts.. The Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture is a tool hospitals can use to assess their patient safety culture, track changes in patient safety over time, and evaluate the impact of patient safety interventions. Using the survey to monitor its performance, Mercy Health saw steady system-wide improvement in its overall safety score, from 58 percent in 2005 to 61.5 percent in 2011. Mercy Healths goal is achieving AHRQs overall perception of patient safety average of 65 percent-a benchmark based on the average score of AHRQ survey respondents.. When using the survey in 2013, however, Mercy Health saw its trajectory toward achieving this goal ...
The HSOPSC survey by AHRQ has been used to meet the increasing demand for patient safety culture assessment in the Western countries, especially in the US. In this study, we used HSOPSC to measure patient safety culture in Taiwan. Samples of 788 respondents from 42 hospitals across Taiwan were evaluated. Overall, the mean positive response rate for the 12 patient safety culture dimensions of the HSOPSC survey was 64%, slightly higher than the AHRQ data (61%). The results show that hospital staffs in Taiwan feel positively toward patient safety culture in their organization. The dimension that received the highest positive response rate was Teamwork within units, which is similar to the results reported in US [6], Belgium [10], and Dutch [14]. On the other hand, the dimension that had the lowest percentage of positive responses was Staffing, meaning that most of the respondents feel that staff allocation is not adequate to handle patient safety related workload. A similar finding was reported ...
Developing a culture where staff are actively aware of how to prevent adverse events is a challenge. The use of survey tools to assess the status of patient safety culture seems to be acceptable as an early step in improving patient safety. The Nursing Home Survey on Patient Safety Culture (NHSOPSC) includes 12 dimensions and is specifically developed for nursing homes. In this study, we describe a Norwegian version of the NHSOPSC and assess its psychometric properties when tested on a sample of healthcare staff in nursing homes. The NHSOPSC was translated into Norwegian and pilot tested before being distributed to 12 nursing homes in Norway. Of the 671 healthcare staff invited, 466 (69 %) answered the questionnaire. SPSS 23.0 was used for descriptive data analysis and estimating internal consistency (Cronbachs alpha). The dimensional structure of the questionnaire was tested by confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) using Mplus (version 7.2). The CFA testing of the original 12-factor solution suggested

Self-report instruments are commonly used, although the weaknesses of self-reporting are widely recognized. Self-report inventories are often a good solution when researchers need to administer a large number of tests in a relatively short period of time. Scoring of the tests is standardized and based on previously established norms. However, self-report inventories have their weaknesses: Some tests are long and tedious. In some cases, a respondent may simply lose interest and not answer questions accurately. Additionally, people are sometimes not the best judges of their own behavior. Some individuals may try to hide their true feelings, thoughts, and attitudes.. The safety culture environment is considered the most important barrier to improving patient care safety [20]. The starting point for developing a safety culture should be the evaluation of the current culture by using an appropriate instrument [21]. This is a starting point for several areas: (1) diagnosis of safety culture and ...

BACKGROUND: The Nursing Home Survey on Patient Safety Culture (NHSOPS) questionnaire was developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), particularly as an intervention to raise staff awareness about patient safety issues. The main objective of the present study was to provide a validated French-language measure of the safety culture (SC) in nursing homes. Thus the aim was i) to carry out a transcultural adaptation into French of the NHSOPS questionnaire, ii) to assess its psychometric properties in a sample of professionals working in French EHPAD facilities and iii) to develop our own tool. METHODS: The study was carried out on volunteering professionals from 61 nursing homes (from January to March 2016). Two phases were conducted: an initial phase involving the translation and cultural adaptation of the questionnaire, and a second phase in which the psychometric properties of the questionnaire were assessed. A Structural Equation Model (SEM) with a maximum likelihood
Electronic health record (EHR) data repositories contain large volumes of aggregated, longitudinal clinical data that could allow patient safety researchers to identify important safety issues and conduct comprehensive evaluations of health care delivery outcomes. However, few health systems have successfully converted this abundance of data into useful information or knowledge for safety improvement. In this paper, we use a case study involving a project on missed/delayed follow-up of test results to discuss real-world challenges in using EHR data for patient safety research. We identify three types of challenges that pose as barriers to advance patient safety improvement research: 1) gaining approval to access/review EHR data; 2) interpreting EHR data; 3) working with local IT/EHR personnel. We discuss the complexity of these challenges, all of which are unlikely to be unique to this project, and outline some key next steps that must be taken to support research that uses EHR data to improve safety.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Surgeon-Reported Complications vs the AHRQ Patient Safety Indicators. T2 - A Comparison of Two Approaches to Identifying Adverse Events. AU - Anderson, Jamie. AU - Utter, Garth H. AU - Romano, Patrick S. AU - Jurkovich, Gregory. PY - 2018/1/1. Y1 - 2018/1/1. N2 - Background: Traditionally, clinicians present complications at surgical morbidity and mortality (M&M) conferences, and the AHRQ Patient Safety Indicators (PSIs) use inpatient administrative data to identify certain adverse outcomes. Although both methods are used to identify adverse events and inform quality improvement efforts, these 2 methods might not overlap. Study Design: This is a retrospective observational study of all hospitalizations at a single academic department of surgery (including subspecialties) in 2016 involving a PSI-defined event (PSIs 03, 05 to 15) identified by surgery faculty and residents for review by departmental M&M conference or administrative data (according to AHRQ, version 6.0).

5. For ranking purposes, a prototypical very poor SMS can be defined as that with scores of 1 in all positive elements and scores of -4, or -3 or -2 when those are the top ranks in the variable, in all negative elements, which results in an added total of -10. Equally, a prototypical poor SMS can be defined as that with scores of 2, or 1.5 when there are ties, in all positive elements and scores of -3, or -2 when there are ties, in all negative elements, which results in an added total of 6. (A similar procedure would also inform about prototypical good SMS and very good SMS.) The difference between adjacent prototypical SMS is about 16 units on the scale (15 units, for convenience). Given the multiplicity of variables and the complexity of safety management in aviation, moving up from one prototypical SMS to the next can be considered a big improvement (and viceversa). Thus, 15 units on the scale can be considered as a big effect size. In consequence, 10 units and 5 units can be ...

Scotland is the first country in the world to mandate a structured safety improvement program for its whole health care system. The Scottish Patient Safety Program, in which all acute care hospitals take part, aims to reduce mortality by 15 percent and patient harm by 30 percent by the end of 2012. Three years into the program, patients and hospitals have made significant progress, including a 7 percent reduction in hospital standardized mortality ratios and dramatic drops in hospital-acquired infection rates.. The program is the first major initiative of the Scottish Patient Safety Alliance, a collaboration of the Scottish government, the National Health Service (NHS), and two leading health care organizations that was established in 2007.. While acute care is the starting point, the Alliances overall approach recognizes that care will take place in a range of settings, with primary care and community-based care becoming increasingly prominent.

The process of collective education in an organization that has the capacity to impact an organizations operations, performance and outcomes is called organizational learning. In health care organizations, patient care is provided through one or more visible and invisible teams. These teams are composed of experts and novices from diverse backgrounds working together to provide coordinated care. The number of teams involved in providing care and the possibility of breakdowns in communication and coordinated care increases in direct proportion to sophisticated technology and treatment strategies of complex disease processes. Safe patient care is facilitated by individual professional learning; inter-professional team learning and system based organizational learning, which encompass modified context specific learning by multiple teams and team members in a health care organization. Organizational learning in health care systems is central to managing the learning requirements in complex interconnected
The Joint Commission adopted a formal Sentinel Event Policy in 1996 to help hospitals that experience serious adverse events improve safety and learn from those sentinel events. Careful investigation and analysis of Patient Safety Events (events not primarily related to the natural course of the patients illness or underlying condition), as well as evaluation of corrective actions, is essential to reduce risk and prevent patient harm. The Sentinel Event Policy explains how The Joint Commission partners with health care organizations that have experienced a serious patient safety event to protect the patient, improve systems, and prevent further harm.. A sentinel event is a Patient Safety Event that reaches a patient and results in any of the following:. ...

Description: Safety is an important aspect of ethical, socially responsible logistics. Current U.S. motor carrier (MC) safety research topical coverage includes the effects of individual and environmental influences, carrier safety management, and regulatory compliance on carrier safety and driver fatigue/safety performance. Interestingly, little research on the subject of truck drivers safety attitudes and behaviors exists and the underlying decision-making processes that guide drivers safety-related behaviors have received little attention. Furthermore, researchers have not provided an integrated framework that explains individual, organizational, and regulatory factors impact on drivers safety decision-making and performance. Truck drivers safety judgments, decisions, and actions must adhere to societal safety norms. To that end, ethical decision-making theory that draws from the deontological and teleological traditions in moral philosophy provides a theoretical foundation and ...
