  • The use of graphic displays and their influence on awareness and
           understanding of patient safety incidents: An exploratory study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lisen Schortz, Liz Mossop, Annika Bergström, Catherine Oxtoby
      Abstract: Journal of Patient Safety and Risk Management, Ahead of Print.
      BackgroundMedical incidents cause harm in both human and veterinary care. Repercussions are similar and reach far beyond the patient, negatively impacting the people close to the patient, healthcare professionals, and the healthcare organization. Whilst good practice is to capture events in incident reporting systems to facilitate learning, critics argue that there is too much focus on this process and too little focus on harnessing the benefits from the data. This exploratory study aimed to investigate how graphic display of data could influence awareness and understanding of patient safety risks.MethodsA dashboard graphically displaying incident data was created and a mixed methods approach was utilized to investigate how the dashboard influenced participants awareness and understanding of incidents. Quantitative pre-intervention and post-intervention survey data was integrated with semi-structured interview data through a pillar integration process.ResultsThe survey response rates were 48% (n = 77) and 46% (n = 74), and 12 interviews were conducted. The four pillars: Emerging enlightenment, tools, behaviours and habits, language and education were identified. There was a difference in understanding of incident data between clinically and non-clinically trained participants.ConclusionThis novel study suggests that graphic displays of data may bring increased understanding of safety risks, trigger activity, and bridge conversations between clinically and non-clinically trained stakeholders.

      Authors: Arkeliana Tase, Peter Buckle, Melody Z. Ni, George B. Hanna
      Abstract: Journal of Patient Safety and Risk Management, Ahead of Print.
      IntroductionTechnological advancements have increased the scope and range of home-use medical devices. These have allowed development of care at home. This requires appropriate understanding of patient's needs with regards to such devices for safe use of medical technology at home and minimise usability errors. This study sought to investigate patient experiences of usability and to identify future requirements for such devicesMethodsA qualitative mixed methods study was chosen. The participants were asked to complete a survey which included both multiple-choice and free-text entry questions. Participant recruitment was through purposive and snowball sampling approaches. All participants were required to have direct experience in using a medical device. Data were thematically analysed.ResultsThere were 360 responses by patients, parents and carers. 503 devices were used by these participants. 99.4% used their device(s) on a daily basis. The largest group of responders were from type 1 diabetic patients. Multiple usability challenges were reported with respect to training, device interoperability, development of workarounds and the device-user interfaces. Device acceptance and their costs were also raised as issues for concern. A list of usability challenges was compiled.ConclusionsPatients and other end users continue to experience multiple usability challenges in the use of medical devices at home despite guidance from regulatory bodies. Better post market studies are required to generate evidence to enable the improved design and safety of the device. This should be accompanied with an evaluation of improvements in patient satisfaction and their compliance with monitoring and treatment.

  • The Health Services Safety Investigations Body (HSSIB) and safety
           management systems: An integrated approach to managing safety in
           healthcare

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jonathan Back, Deinniol Owens, Rosie Benneyworth
      Abstract: Journal of Patient Safety and Risk Management, Ahead of Print.
      The Health Services Safety Investigations Body (HSSIB) was established by the Health and Care Act 2022 as a new non-departmental arm's length body, replacing the former Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch. HSSIB exists to help reduce patient harm by understanding the complex interactions that exist within healthcare that may lead to patient safety events occurring. In other safety critical industries, a safety management system (SMS) approach is used to help enable proactive assessments of risks, specification of how risks should be managed, and set clear lines of accountability and responsibility in addressing risks. HSSIB has begun to explore how an SMS may operate in healthcare to help better equip the system to identify, respond, and proactively identify emerging and recurring concerns that may impact on the safety of patients.

      Authors: D.M. Ashoka Priyadarshani Dissanayake, Kumudini Paba Dharmasena, Sudath Shirley Pathmasiri Warnakulasuriya
      Abstract: Journal of Patient Safety and Risk Management, Ahead of Print.
      IntroductionThe World Health Organization's Multi-Professional Patient Safety (PS) Curriculum (WHO-MPSC) was introduced in 2011, which made PS content easily available for nursing educators to integrate into their own curricula. With the exception of a few developed countries that have their own PS frameworks, many countries have yet to fully integrate PS concepts in pre-licensure healthcare education. The literature reveals numerous challenges when attempting to integrate new patient safety (PS) concepts. Due to the lack of updated synthesis and appraisal of these challenges, a synthesis of findings from the literature was deemed timely and significant. Hence, a literature review was carried out to comprehensively understand the challenges.MethodsAn integrative review was conducted by searching electronic databases for the years 2011–2022. The Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), MEDLINE databases and Google Scholar were searched. The search terms were barriers, challenges, nursing students and PS education.ResultsTwenty reviews met the inclusion criteria. Through this review, investigators were able to identify 5 major categories of challenges (educators’ characteristics, administration, programme structure, curriculum, theory–practice gap) and 17 individual challenges of PS education implementation.ConclusionThe theory-practice gap, curriculum development, and programme structure are areas that should be targeted by curriculum developers in nursing education. Furthermore, it was revealed that there is a need for further research on topics such as resistance to change and individual innovativeness among nurse educators.

  • Patient safety near misses – Still missing opportunities to learn

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Nick Woodier, Charlotte Burnett, Paul Sampson, Iain Moppett
      Abstract: Journal of Patient Safety and Risk Management, Ahead of Print.
      ObjectivesA patient safety near miss is a safety event that had the potential to cause harm, but did not reach the patient. For over 20 years healthcare has been exhorted to learn from patient safety near misses to support improvements in patient safety. The belief is that, by addressing the factors that contribute to patient safety near misses, harmful incidents will be avoided. However, there seems to have been little progress made to learn from patient safety near misses. This study aimed to explore why there has been limited progress, and how best patient safety near misses may be learned from.MethodsA qualitative case study was undertaken to explore the learning from patient safety near misses in different National Health Service contexts. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with patient safety leads in secondary care, primary care, and regional/national bodies. Interviews were recorded, transcribed, and thematically analysed.ResultsSeventeen interviews were undertaken across the National Health Service, with further data collected from policy, guidance, field notes, and research memos. Thematic analysis identified the following: variations in safety event schema; limited processes for patient safety near misses; unsupportive reporting contexts; and assumed, but non-evidenced improvements in patient safety. Participants also shared their thoughts on how learning from patient safety near misses could be improved.ConclusionA lack of progress has been made to learn from patient safety near misses in the National Health Service. This is contributed to by a lack of agreement about what is and how best to learn from a patient safety near miss. The learning value of patient safety near misses lies in the focus they place on controls to hazards, but they should not be learned from in isolation.

      Authors: Hayley Smith, Raman Bhutani, Angana Mitra, Victoria Goulden, Walayat Hussain, Rajib Rahim, Claire Machin, Graeme I Stables
      Abstract: Journal of Patient Safety and Risk Management, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Wrong site skin surgery is a never event with implications for patient well-being, in addition to potential medicolegal ramifications. There is no standardised approach to wrong site surgery (WSS) prevention in the United Kingdom. However, the World Health Organisation surgical checklist and NHS England's safety standards for invasive procedures (NatSSIP) have been useful in guiding the direction of change.Our experience:We describe our experience over the past decade, detailing five cases of WSS including three wrong site biopsies and two re-excisions of the wrong scar. Each provided a learning opportunity, identifying vulnerabilities in the skin surgery pathway.Our five-step approach to safer skin surgery:By reflecting on our experience, we created a simple five-step approach to safer skin surgery which could easily be adopted by other dermatology departments. This includes, developing a Standard operating procedure, requesting a surgical procedure, medical photography, in theatre, and education/governance. Our approach provides a step in the right direction for national standardisation of the skin surgery pathway.

  • How deep is a problem of second victims for medical staff' A pilot
           study in Croatia

      Authors: Anatoliy G Goncharuk, Bojana Knežević, Sandra C Buttigieg, José Joaquín Mira
      Abstract: Journal of Patient Safety and Risk Management, Ahead of Print.
      Adverse events lead to the emergence of several groups of victims, among which the second victims are medical staff involved in them. The suffering of second victims can lead to new adverse events and new victims. This study describes the cycle of an adverse event and its victims. Using the example of the largest Croatian hospital centre, authors try to understand how deep medical staff experience adverse events, and how different groups of medical staff (by profession, gender, qualification, and position) perceive adverse events. With the help of a special survey using the Bonferroni method from ANOVA, it was established that males feel more mental stress after adverse events than females. The results indicate that medical staff of different professions perceive adverse events differently, e.g. they are the least painful for psychiatrists and microbiologists and the most stressing for emergency and intensive care workers. In addition, nurses are more vulnerable to adverse events and experience various types of mental disorders more deeply than doctors. However, qualifications do not seem to affect the extent to which medical staff perceive adverse events. The results of this study differ from previous data for other countries and suggest new implications.

      Authors: Ayşegül Yılmaz, Özlem Erdem
      Abstract: Journal of Patient Safety and Risk Management, Ahead of Print.
      ObjectivesPatient safety competencies (PSC) of nursing students are, in particular, critical for quality and safe care. In the study, it was aimed to determine the PSC of nursing students and the factors affecting them.MethodsThis descriptive cross-sectional, relationship-seeking, and comparative study was conducted between February 1st and May 15th, 2022. The sample of the study consisted of 441 students studying at three universities. The data were collected online using the Sociodemographic Data Form and PSC Self-Evaluation Tool.ResultsIn institutions where the study was conducted, students rated their level as above moderate in the PSC. Those aged 23 and over, and those who had received education on patient safety in patient care and drug administration were found to have a higher level of PSC. When the scores that all students obtained from the overall scale and its subscales were compared, it was determined that students of University C had statistically higher overall and subscale scores than those in the other two universities.ConclusionThe assessment of PSC and the determination of the influencing variables may shed light on the regulations to be conducted in this regard. Patient safety courses should be included in the nursing curriculum as a compulsory course in two semesters at basic and advanced levels.

      Authors: Enid Y Rivera-Chiauzzi, Kirsten A Riggan, Lily Huang, Robyn E Finney, Megan A Allyse
      Abstract: Journal of Patient Safety and Risk Management, Ahead of Print.
      There is growing recognition that clinical and nonclinical healthcare professionals may become “second victims” following adverse patient events, medical errors, or patient-related injuries. In addition to the trauma-associated symptoms experienced by second victims, unprocessed second victim experience (SVE) can lead to burnout and leaving the healthcare workforce. To better understand the risk factors and support needs of affected healthcare professionals after a SVE, we conducted in-depth qualitative interviews with twelve staff in obstetrics & gynecology and pediatrics at a large academic medical institution in the upper Midwest of the U.S. Several participants indicated that it was not the patient outcome itself that precipitated the SVE, but associated factors such as moral distress or communication challenges. Participants discussed the role of their work unit culture in post-SVE processing, expressing that units perceived as blame-seeking or where adverse events were not openly discussed, hindered their recovery. While desired support mechanisms were individualized, participants stressed the importance of immediate and proactive support, such as through a peer support program, and long-term support mechanisms for lingering symptoms. As attrition of the healthcare workforce continues to be a significant concern, it is essential that we understand and meet the post-SVE support needs of affected staff, to promote holistic care following adverse patient events.

      ObjectivePerforming accurate medication history and reconciliation is recognized to reduce medication discrepancies and errors resulting in improved patient safety. This quality improvement project retrospectively evaluated the impact of a newly implemented pharmacy-led admission medication reconciliation program for several hospitals.MethodsIn 2020, a pharmacy-led admission medication reconciliation program was implemented in 16 hospitals across a large health system. The program targeted high-risk, complex inpatients admitted through the emergency department and directly to the hospital. Medication history technicians captured the best possible medication list and medication reconciliation pharmacists reviewed the list, collaborating with providers to complete reconciliation, and intervening to optimize drug therapy. A retrospective, pre-post analysis was performed comparing the preimplementation time period of June to November 2019 to the postimplementation time period of June to November 2020. Outcomes evaluated included pharmacy staff productivity, adverse drug events (ADEs), complications, and healthcare professional satisfaction.ResultsA total of 311,473 patients were admitted to the 16 hospitals during the pre- and postimplementation time periods. During the six-month postimplementation period, nearly 80,000 medication histories and reconciliations were completed, with 39.9% of those histories requiring medication clarification. Both the ADE rate and complication rate decreased significantly after program implementation, 12% decrease (p

      BackgroundA narrow therapeutic index drug (NTID) has a narrow window between its effective doses and doses that can cause adverse toxic effects, necessitating strict monitoring for drug safety. This study aimed to identify and classify the drug-related problems (DRPs) associated with the use of NTI drugs.MethodA prospective cohort study was carried out in the in-patient departments of General Medicine, Paediatrics, Cardiology, and Neurology at a tertiary care hospital over a nine-month period. Patients of either gender receiving at least one NTID included after obtaining their consent. The patients were followed until their discharge for any DRP occurrence. The list of the NTIDs was compiled through a review of literature review and the hospital's formulary. Hepler & Strand's classification was adopted to classify the identified DRPs. The odds ratio with a 95% confidence interval was used to determine the predictors for DRP occurrence.ResultsA total of 241 DRPs associated with NTIDs were identified among 120 patients. Drug–drug interactions accounted for 61% of the DRPs, followed by subtherapeutic dosing (18.26%) and adverse drug reactions (9.96%). On average, each patient experienced 2.74 DRPs. The predictors for DRP occurrence included gender (odds ratio [OR] 2.65, p = .012), comorbid conditions (OR 2.947, p

      Abstract: Journal of Patient Safety and Risk Management, Ahead of Print.
      BackgroundImmunological responses to metal ions can occur in people with metal implantable devices. Nevertheless, patients are not routinely asked about metal hypersensitivity nor tested for it prior to surgical procedures. Moreover, we have not identified any published literature on patients’ experiences with this condition. We undertook this study to better understand the experiences of patients with metal hypersensitivity and to determine what information would help them make an informed decision about implantable medical devices with metal compositions.MethodsThis is a patient-oriented research using an interpretative phenomenological methodology. We enrolled 16 people from five countries (Canada, New Zealand, Spain, the UK, and the USA) who experienced metal hypersensitivity following implantable medical device. We collected data from in-depth, semi-structured interviews focused on pre-procedural patient education and postoperative experiences to elucidate the barriers and opportunities related to metal hypersensitivity. We analyzed the data using interpretative phenomenological analysis.ResultsThe majority were white biological women between the ages of 34 and 65. None of the participants were informed about immunological responses to metals in implants during the consenting process. They encountered many challenges when symptoms of metal hypersensitivity occurred. The outcomes for the few who had the implants removed were mixed.ConclusionHypersensitivity reactions to metal need to be discussed as part of the consenting process, and addition strategies are needed to mitigate this issue in the health system.

  • Medication error during nonoperating room anesthesia—a case report

      Abstract: Journal of Patient Safety and Risk Management, Ahead of Print.
      Despite a lot has already been done in the field of safety improvement during anesthesia, medication errors still occur during everyday practice. Syringe or ampule swaps are usually the most frequent type of medication error. Recent studies prove that nearly 80% of these errors are preventable. In our case, 30 mg (3 ml) of dopamine (Dopamin Fresenius 10 mg/ml) was injected to the patient’s intravenous line instead of 3 mg (3 ml) midazolam (Midazolam Accord 1 mg/ml) during the preparation for the carotid artery stenting procedure in nonoperating room environment. The error was realized immediately after the application. Besides temporary fulminant hypertensive reaction, tachycardia, restlessness, skin rush, troponin leak, and temporary ST-segment depression, there were no permanent consequences to the patient's health. The team was able to perform the planned procedure 30 min after the event. This medication error of ampule swap, packages of which were stored in the medication cupboard one above the other, was caused by alignment of the latent vulnerable layers of the safety system (Swiss Cheese Model of System Error and Hot Cheese Model) plus the influence of the environmental factors and active failures done by the anesthesia staff. After this event, new safety measures were established by introducing color-coded ISO 26825:2020 syringe labeling, new anesthesia trolleys with color-coded medication compartments, and color-coded medication storage cupboards. Besides this safety committee was formed for the promotion of medication safety education programs.
