This literature review assesses the current evidence on medical error prevention and management and explores the integration of patient safety into patient care provided by medical humanitarian organizations. The research identified describes patient safety initiatives occurring within three levels: (1) individual staff involved in care provision or management, (2) medical institutions or organizations, and (3) national healthcare systems, laws and regulations and accreditation bodies. Given the absence of overarching authority over healthcare systems and staff turnover within humanitarian organizations, the authors discuss the importance of adapting patient safety models at the organizational level.
