Hospitals are safer than ever

NHS Scotland is safer than ever as latest figures show hospital mortality has drastically reduced, claim the Scottish Government.

Across Scotland there has been a 12.4% reduction in deaths – equating to over 8,500 lives saved – since the introduction of the world-leading Scottish Patient Safety Programme in 2008.

Cabinet Secretary for Health Alex Neil visited the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary today to hear how staff are ensuring people receiving care do not experience harm – such as infections, falls, blood clots and pressure sores.

Measures put in place as part of the national programme include: a safety checklist to be completed before operations take place, more ward rounds, double-checking medicines and an early warning system for critically ill patients.
