Safety lessons from the NIH Clinical Center.
System failures can remain undetected over time in large organizations. This perspective describes elements of a health care research environment that enabled lapses in safety, such as financial pressures and shifting priorities. The author calls for industry-wide learning from this example to ensure that patient safety remains a priority and that organizations invest and commit to an infrastructure that encourages safety.
