The science of patient safety could link itself more effectively to cost effective care.
The title gto this article certainly is an attention grabber, wow!
Here is a one sentence that sums the article up:
"Much of what we do to patients is based in our culture of infinite health care resources. We don’t necessarily even need the IV, but put it in anyway, just in case. There is a perverse incentive to do this, since a patient on IV medications of certain types is felt by payers such as medicare to need hospitalization, and one without IV is not.
A truly insightful perspective.
