Papadopoulos I, Koulouglioti C, Ali S. Contemp Nurse. 2018;54:425-442.
Robotics are increasingly used to assist in both complicated and routine activities in health care. Although safety hazards associated with robotic technologies have been explored in surgery, risks related to purely assistive devices is understudied. This review highlights clinician perspectives regarding assistive robots in health care and highlights infection control and reliability issues as concerns associated with their use.

Kho ME, Carbone JM, Lucas J, Cook DJ. Qual Saf Health Care. 2005;14:273-278.
This study examined the utility of three safety climate instruments and compared their consistency in measuring desired outcomes. Investigators administered the different tools to staff in four intensive care units and report on the test characteristics of each. The authors advocate for more rigorous evaluation of safety climate tools if they are to effectively measure the success of safety interventions in different clinical settings.
