Connolly W, Rafter N, Conroy RM, et al. BMJ Qual Saf. 2021;Epub Jan 14.

This longitudinal study set in Ireland found that adverse event rates remained stable between 2009 and 2015. The authors found a decrease in the rate of preventable healthcare-acquired infections, and attributed these decreases to national programs and guidelines.
