Patient Safety and Healthcare-Associated Infections

Özet :

Council Recommendation 2009/C 151/01 1 put forward a range of measures on general patient safety and healthcare-associated infections (HAI) and invited the Commission to report on whether the measures are working effectively and to consider the need for further action.

The Commission’s first report, which was published in 2012, 2 demonstrated satisfactory progress in the development of national policies and programmes on patient safety. It also identified areas requiring further effort: the education and training of healthcare workers in patient safety, empowering patients and developing a culture of learning from errors.

The report showed uneven progress across the EU. Some Member States reported that implementation had been slowed by financial constraints resulting from the economic crisis. The Commission therefore proposed that its monitoring of the implementation of the general patient safety provisions be extended for another two years.
