This video series uses two real cases of patients who died due to preventable errors after elective surgery to illustrate fundamental concepts in patient safety and provide lessons for patients and families in engaging in their own care. The circumstances leading to the death of Lewis Blackman, one of the patients discussed in this video series, are discussed in more detail in a separate article that analyzes his death as an example of failure to rescue.

This study examined ambulatory follow-up of test results by aggregating multiple types of data—national surveys on safety culture and patient satisfaction; patient complaints; safety reports; and electronic health record audits of provider response times. Researchers found an association between quicker response time for test results and higher patient satisfaction. They conclude that merging these disparate data sources can uncover new levers to improve patient safety.
National Quality Forum. Washington, DC: National Quality Forum; 2009.
The National Quality Forum's Safe Practices for Better Healthcare provide a blueprint for organizations to improve the quality and safety of patient care. The practices are organized into seven content areas: establishing leadership structures and systems, improving safety culture, honoring patient's wishes for informed consent and error disclosure, matching health care needs with delivery capacity, facilitating information transfer and clear communication between providers, managing medications safely, preventing health care–associated infections, and implementing safe practices for specific clinical conditions and sites of care. Since the last update in 2006, seven new practices have been added and others retired. The practices are defined so that organizations can measure the relationship between implementation of the practices and patient safety outcomes.
