Patient safety in Region Gotland Sweden

Healthcare should be safe. An important ethical guideline for health professionals is to do no harm. But staff in care are also human who can do wrong. Therefore, care is organized to make it as difficult as possible to do wrong, and as easy as possible to get it right.

There are several ways to improve safety in health care:

  • Take advantage of the knowledge that occurred error holds
  • Make sure that the knowledge of how to prevent errors is used
  • Work systematically with structurel improvements

Together, patients, families and staff can make healthcare safer!
