Eli Y. Adashi & I. Glenn Cohen, Persistent Inpatient Harm: the Unremitting Challenge of Patient Safety, J. Gen. Internal Med. (2022).


Abstract: The sobering realization that little has changed in the scope of inpatient harm makes it plain that efforts intent on improving patient safety must be redoubled if the status quo is to be reversed. Living up to the recommendations of the iconic Institute of Medicine (IOM) Report (To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System) must remain top of mind. Much can and must be done to assure to the degree possible the safety of the inpatient population.
