New methods to prevent injury of patients
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.
