According to a March 2020 report by non-profit, independent organization, ECRI Institute, diagnostic errors and maternal health issues are considered to be the top two patient safety concerns for healthcare organizations. This report, however, was released prior to Covid-19 becoming the national focal point in the U.S. ECRI's list of the top 10 patient safety concerns was based on analysis of more than 3.2 million patient safety events recorded via the institute’s reporting program. The list (in order) is as follows: Missed and delayed diagnosis. Maternal health across the continuum. Early recognition of behavioral health needs. Responding to and learning from device problems. Devise cleaning, disinfection and sterilization. Standardizing safety across the system. Patient matching in the Electronic Health Records. Antimicrobial stewardship.
