Response by author Theresa A. Gaffney to Sherry K. Markwell on “Enhancing Patient Safety: Factors Influencing Medical Error Recovery Among Medical-Surgical Nurses” (September 30, 2016)

Medical errors continue to rise and are one of the top three patient safety concerns today.  Organizations committed to a culture of safety are more successful in recovering medical errors.  Ms. Markwell has identified a crucial strategy in creating a culture of safety and recovering medical errors.  I appreciate her stressing the importance of reporting medical device errors. Again, there is great opportunity for improvement in keeping patients safe and nurses are the key.
