This book presents a clinically tested, patient safety model for healthcare system leaders, middle-managers, and administrators to build their patient safety program and to help sustain, renew, or obtain accreditation. The Myers' Patient Safety Model presents an organised approach to promoting patient safety and obtaining accreditation. The author provides detailed explanations of why medical errors still occur in accredited hospitals, and provides the much needed organisation-wide steps to prevent these errors and enhance patient safety for improved outcomes. The book links all aspects of patient safety with accreditation standards at the national level, and also discusses efforts to globalise accreditation criteria and procedures.
