This report presents ten case studies to illustrate interventions that address prominent and targeted areas for patient safety improvement. The five areas of focus include promoting an organizational safety culture, improving teamwork and communication, enhancing rapid response to inpatient crises, preventing health care–associated infections in intensive care units, and preventing hospital-based adverse drug events.
