According to researchers at the Hopkins University, Dallas, new ways should be adopted for patients' safety in hospitals. You can get injured in hospital, just as you can on the road and it may be that some of the more recent approaches to road safety can help people in hospital too. Doctors at the Hopkins University suggest that what's needed is an approach which concentrates on the context of injury and improving technology, rather than assigning blame to medical personnel.
In road safety, automobile technology improvements have brought benefits - rather than blaming the driver. Researchers feel that in hospitals, computerised prescriptions could stop drug errors more effectively than blaming doctors or nurses who make a mistake.
