Protecting our youngest patients: More must be done
Julie Morath, RN, chief operating officer of the Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, says that while the research being done about the quality and safety of healthcare for adults is “remarkable,” more must be done to help identify the unsafe areas of medical care for children. Morath points to a recent study that found for every 100 children admitted to hospitals, there were about 11 drug-related harmful events—more than one in five of which were preventable.
