It is essential to follow the proper patient safety guidelines for a safe and healthy environment. Healthcare organizations and hospitals that want to provide their patients with the best care possible need to implement these guidelines to reduce errors and accidents, leading to further complications down the road.
You need to follow some of the essential patient safety guidelines while working in a healthcare setting, and the more you know about these key points, the safer your patients will be.
So take some time to review each one and see how it applies to your situation. For more information on any of these topics, be sure to visit and attend our upcoming Healthcare 2021 conferences.
Know the safety measure guidelines from the Experts by attending the Nursing Conference in December 2021.
What are patient safety guidelines?
To overcome all the errors, we need to fix them before they happen. A major and essential guide that every medical staff should follow and strictly obey this;
Restrict infection spread: Wash and sanitize hands before direct contact with the patients. Each year, healthcare-associated infections affect nearly two million patients and lead to an estimated 99,000 deaths. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), they cost the health care system as much as $20 billion, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Identify Patient Correctly: Incorrectly identifying a patient is a common hospital error. When you’re preparing to give medicine or perform a procedure, make sure to rely on at least two pieces of information – the Patient’s name and date of birth – to help ensure that patients receive the treatment intended for them. Also, check for the correct blood type before transfusions.
Prescribe medicine safely to the patients: Label all medication, syringes, cups, basins, and medical equipment. Take extra safety with patients on blood thinners. With the various number of prescription medicine in the market, there are more chances of significant potential error due to confusing brand, packaging and generic names. Make sure that any additional drugs don’t conflict with current ones.
Avoid surgical errors: The surgical process is one of the most delicate processes in healthcare. It needs to be completed within a specific time frame, or it can lead to serious health issues for patients. So it is more important that doctors be aware of this and complete surgery at a given time frame.
Build a rapid response system in an emergency: At any moment, medical emergencies happen without any notice. So it is the responsibility of all the medical authorities to build a skilled and efficient intense response team to take care of uninformed medical emergencies.
Hospital-acquired infections: Hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are infections that people get after surgery or treatment in a hospital, and they can be severe. So every professional should make sure that they are taking serious measures and standards to avoid this while surgery, etc. Precautions should be taken because of the increase in cases of hospital-acquired infections.
Communicate safety information to Patient: In order to ensure safety, it is essential for medical professionals to communicate patient safety information to patients. For example, when a patient has been given a prescription for a drug that interacts with grapefruit, it is the responsibility to make sure they are informed not to eat grapefruit.
Build safe hospital infrastructure: Hospitals should be aware of some structural characteristics like air quality, critical information proximity, noise dampening, and standardized feature locations, as well as fixtures that reduce contagion spread, such as colleague’s hand sinks, in all Surgery areas. Behind all these, engineers should use advanced technology so that wires don’t catch fire.
Safety in healthcare is all about small changes that can have significant impacts. This short guide provides you with some simple tips that can help you improve your health care safety efforts.
