Kaba A, Barnes S. Adv Simul (Lond). 2019;4:17.
New constructed environments should be assessed to ensure designs don't result in workarounds and inefficiencies. This commentary describes a case study to highlight simulation as a tool to identify latent problems present in new spaces prior to their active use for patient care.
Dubé MM, Reid J, Kaba A, et al. Simul Healthc. 2019;14:333-342.
Simulation is used to assess process and team performance and prevent failure. This commentary discusses the Promoting Excellence And Reflective Learning in Simulation (PEARLS) framework and how the modifiable debriefing strategies in the framework can help identify system-level problems and implement changes to enhance patient safety.
Dolan SA, Arias KM, Felizardo G, et al. American journal of infection control. 2016;44:750-7.
Improper injection practices associated with point-of-care testing and treatment can contribute to the spread of health care–associated infections. This position paper outlines how clinicians and infection preventionists can reduce unsafe behaviors with surveillance, oversight, enforcement, individual skills development, and professional accountability.
