Patient Safety Comes Home

A commentator recently described the US as a “nation of patients.” Almost half of all adults in this country have at least one chronic illness and about 24 percent have multiple conditions, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Many will require long-term care and assistance with activities of daily living, such as eating, dressing, and bathing.

 Increasingly, health care is being provided within the home, either by caregivers or by patients themselves. While no one would claim that we’ve conquered the patient safety problem in hospitals, many now recognize that in order to advance safe health care we need to consider how care is delivered across the continuum — and that includes at home.
