Medical Devices Can Help Enhance Patient Safety

March 10 – 16 is National Patient Safety Awareness Week™, and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement – National Patient Safety Foundation is raising awareness to improve patient safety in the delivery of health care.

Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States, succeeding heart disease and cancer. Approximately 440,000 Americans lose their life to medical errors each year. 1

In a 2016-released patient care study that took place over eight consecutive years, researchers found that in a total of 35,416,020 hospitalizations, there was an incidence rate of 251,454 deaths per year due to medical error.1

Medication errors and hospital acquired infections are some of the most common patient safety concerns.2 Fortunately, there are devices on the market designed to help prevent medical errors and enhance patient safety.
