Safety and Quality
Patient Safety & Quality
Quality in healthcare means the best possible health outcomes given the available circumstances and resources, consistent with patient centred care.
Safety in healthcare is reducing the risk of unnecessary harm to an acceptable minimum level. Patient safety is the freedom from hazards due to medical care or medical error in the practice setting. Harm can arise in healthcare, by omission or commission, and from the environment in which the healthcare is carried out.
In reality, the total absence of harm in the healthcare setting is unachievable and so the concept of safety relates to reducing the risk of unnecessary harm to an acceptable minimum level. An acceptable minimum level refers to the level of risk that is generally acceptable given the level of current knowledge, available resources and the context in which care is delivered weighed against the risk of having or not having treatment.
