What is Patient Safety ?

Patient Safety is becoming a cause of concern as the healthcare delivery is becoming very specialized and complex. Healthcare delivery requires coordination between the team members. Medical Harm happens when this coordination lacks due to communication failure. Many safety checks that healthcare systems have in place may not work as they should and cause avoidable harm to the patient. It is now well recognised that patients too can play a significant role in minimising this avoidable harm.
