Through the Eyes of the Workforce: Creating Joy, Meaning, and Safer Health Care

Source: National Patient Safety Foundation, Lucian Leape Institute, 2013

From the abstract:
Workplace safety is inextricably linked to patient safety. Unless caregivers are given the protection, respect, and support they need, they are more likely to make errors, fail to follow safe practices, and not work well in teams.

This report looks at the current state of health care as a workplace, highlights vulnerabilities common in health care organizations, discusses the costs of inaction, and outlines what a healthy and safe workplace would look like. The report concludes with seven recommendations for actions that organizations need to pursue to effect real change.
