Del

The Patient Safety Movement Foundation (PSMF) announced today a commitment from Scotland’s national patient safety initiative, the Scottish Patient Safety Programme (SPSP).

Launched in 2008, the SPSP first started as a five-year program focused on acute hospitals and now operates as a national initiative managed by Healthcare Improvement Scotland aimed at improving the safety and reliability of healthcare, whenever care is delivered.

SPSP’s commitment through the Patient Safety Movement Foundation is broken down into the 6 different areas listed below. Central to all of the areas are three core themes: 1) Prevention, recognition and response to deterioration 2) Medicines Safety and 3) System enablers. For complete details, please visit their commitment online.

  • Acute Adult: Improving reliable care delivery, communication and care planning & reducing harm and mortality in hospitals
  • Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs): Application of standard infection control precautions (SICPs) in all care settings & achieving reliable systems and processes around the reduction of HAIs
  • Primary Care: Improving safety across the community and across the interface & reducing harm from high risk medicines
  • Maternity and Children (includes pediatric and neonatal care): Improving outcomes for babies, children and their mothers & increasing women’s satisfaction of their experience of care
  • Medication: Taking a whole system approach to the safer use of medicines
    & optimizing medication reconciliation and reducing harm from high risk medicines
  • Mental Health: Improving risk assessment and safety planning & reducing harm from restraint and seclusion

The programme’s goals include:

  • Improving patient safety in acute care by ensuring 95% of people are free from harm in the following areas: Cardiac Arrest, Catheter-associated Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI), pressure ulcers and falls
  • Reducing the hospital-standardized mortality ratio (HSMR) by 20%
  • Increasing the percentage of women satisfied with their experience of maternity care to >95%
  • Reducing the incidence of avoidable harm in women and babies by 30%
  • Reducing stillbirths and neonatal mortality by 15%
  • Reducing severe post-partum haemorrhage (PPH) by 30%
  • Reducing the incidence of non-medically indicated elective deliveries prior to 39 weeks gestation by 30%
  • General Dental Practice Teams plan to achieve 90% compliance with high risk medications care bundle by December 2016
  • 50% of Primary Care Clinical Teams plan to complete a Safety Climate Survey and develop their safety culture by March 2017
  • Reducing pressure ulcers in care homes by 50% by December 2017
  • Ensuring that within Mental Health inpatient units, both the patients and staff are kept safe and feel safe

“We are excited to be working with the Patient Safety Movement Foundation,” said Joanne Matthews, Head of the SPSP. “Our programme has to date been delivered through a collaborative approach based on the Breakthrough Series Collaborative Model, using national and local learning events, site visits , webinars, collecting data and sharing learning across the country. With ongoing programme expansion and development, a range of other improvement methods are now being tested.”

“We are impressed with Scotland’s Patient Safety program and their government’s focus on making patient safety a top priority,” said Joe Kiani, Founder of the Patient Safety Movement Foundation “Patient safety is a global issue and we hope to assist in breaking down the silos in the healthcare eco-system around the world. We can help each other move towards attaining zero faster.”

About The Patient Safety Movement Foundation

More than 3,000,000 people worldwide, and 200,000 people in the US die every year in hospitals in ways that could have been prevented. The Patient Safety Movement Foundation was established through the support of the Masimo Foundation for Ethics, Innovation, and Competition in Healthcare, to reduce that number of preventable deaths to 0 by 2020 (0X2020) in the US and dramatically worldwide. Improving patient safety will require a collaborative effort from all stakeholders, including patients, healthcare providers, medical technology companies, government, employers, and private payers. The Patient Safety Movement Foundation works with all stakeholders to address the problems and solutions of patient safety. The Foundation also convenes the annual World Patient Safety, Science and Technology summit. The Summit presents specific, actionable solutions to meet patient safety challenges, encouraging medical technology companies to share the data for which their products are purchased, and asking hospitals to make commitments to implement Actionable Patient Safety Solutions.
