It is a must for every physician''s bookshelf." -- Abraham Verghese, MD, Professor, Stanford University andauthor of the bestselling Cutting for Stone "Bob Wachter''s quest to improve the safety of American healthcare represents the very essence of a physician''s duty to put the patient first.

All of the important issues are addressed in individual chapters, each with a lively and relevant clinical example and a "key points" summary at the end bracketing full, balancedand lucid descriptions.

And there''s no more effective primer on patient safety than this one." -- Atul Gawande, MD, MPH, Associate Professor, Harvard Medical School, staff writer for the New Yorker, and bestselling author of Complications and The Checklist Manifesto "Compelling: a must read for all concerned with patient safety. Bob Wachter has a unique voice, incorporating clinical experience, research expertise, and policy implications...all with the patient front and center." -- Peter J. Pronovost, MD, PhD, Professor and Director of the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality, Johns Hopkins Medicine Understanding Patient Safety, Second Edition is the essential book for anyone seeking to learn the core clinical, organizational, and systems issues of patient safety. Written in an engaging and accessible style by one of the world''s leading authorities on patient safety and quality, Understanding Patient Safety is filled with valuable cases and analyses, as well as tables, graphics, references, and tools. This classic reference is designed to make the patient safety field understandable to medical, nursing, pharmacy, hospital administration, and other trainees, and to be the go-to book for experienced clinicians and non-clinicians alike. The second edition has been revised to include coverage of the latest issues and trends, including: Information technology Measurements of safety, errors, and harm Checklist-based interventions Safety targets Policy issues in patient safety Balancing "no blame" and accountability Understanding Patient Safety, Second Edition delivers key insights to help you understand and prevent aa broad range of errors, including those related to medications, surgery, diagnosis, infections, and nursing care.
