NOT JUST A TOP 10 LIST With this report, ECRI Institute is releasing its top 10 list of patient safety concerns for 2015. This is the second year we have compiled the list, which is partly based on our review of patient safety event reports, research requests, and rootcause analyses submitted to ECRI Institute PSO, one of the first patient safety organizations (PSOs) to be federally certified under the provisions of the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act (PSQIA). PSQIA gives healthcare organizations a unique opportunity to voluntarily share their safety surveillance data in a protected environment so PSOs can aggregate and analyze the data. The law also charges PSOs with the responsibility to share the findings and lessons learned. The release of our top 10 list of patient safety concerns is in keeping with that responsibility. ECRI Institute’s Top 10 Patient Safety Concerns for Healthcare Organizations is more than just a list; it’s a reminder that, despite the attention given to patient safety over the last 15 years or so, we can do better. Since we began collecting patient safety events in 2009 as a PSO, we have received nearly 500,000 event reports. Each event often describes a systems-related breakdown, or a near failure, in the care process of the patients our members are committed to serving. Some of the events describe serious, preventable patient injuries or deaths.
