Is health care getting safer?

Vincent C, Aylin P, Franklin BD, et al. BMJ (Clinical research ed.). 2008;337:a2426.

This commentary reflects on data from the United Kingdom's National Health Service to underscore the current inadequacy of methods to measure safety. Similar to a past commentary from the United States, the authors call for more systematic data collection strategies that will better monitor and track progress in patient safety.
