Description:

No one ever expects it. A fire in a Florida hospital’s electrical vault destroys the emergency power system, resulting in surgeons completing operations by flashlight, patient evacuations, and the total shutdown of the facility. In the U.K., two are injured in a hospital stabbing, while across the globe in Australia mental patients attack a nurse. Patient safety is a serious problem in healthcare organizations around the world – whether the threat is a power failure, a security breach, or airborne infections. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), about one in 10 patients is harmed while receiving care in even the most advanced hospitals. Compare this statistic to the chances of being harmed in a commercial airplane or in a nuclear power plant – 1 in 1,000,000.
