Failure-to-rescue is considered a potential contributing factor in the wide variations in surgical mortality rates. This review explored the evidence regarding the surgical mortality of older patients and found system factors that affected failure-to-rescue rates, including safety culture and access to technology. The authors suggest that teamwork and communication improvement can help reduce failure-to-rescue in this patient population.
