Patient safety teams recognised at BMJ awards.

The Great Ormond Street Hospital Foundation NHS Trust received the 2014 Berwick Patient Safety Team Award for their project "Pursuing Zero by Building Sustainable Foundations for Safety," which applied recommendations generated in response to the Francis report. The program introduced a daily questionnaire for parents and patients about problems related to medication errors, equipment, communication, or organization of care, which was then reviewed with a nurse to immediately address concerns.
