2000 health mistakes in a year and they want to know about more…

Post by GD on Mon 22 Nov 2010, 6:42 pm

PATIENTS are being encouraged to report mistakes in an attempt to raise the standard of Guernsey’s health service.
Last year, nearly 2,000 incidents were recorded on the department’s new electronic system.
Half of those were slips, trips and falls, but others included drug errors, resuscitation, birth, clinical and minor injury incidents.
Staff highlighted the majority but the director of public health, Dr Stephen Bridgman, pictured, wants more patients to feel they can come forward.

2000 know mistakes ok half were slips etc but the rest seem worring to me that these errors were allowed to happen. I wonder if they will make any of these public?
