Half of NHS Trust Hospitals are still not complying with Patient Safety Alerts

AvMA, Action against Medical Accidents, reports that half of NHS Trusts are still not complying with Patient Safety Alerts. It should really beggar belief, but somehow the repeated cavalier attitude to patient care comes to be simply what we expect of the NHS, the Health Service that puts patients last.

"AvMA today published its latest report into implementation of patient safety alerts "Too little too late?" It shows that whilst there has been a significant improvement since our report six months ago, half of NHS trusts still have not complied with at least one alert which is past its deadline. 45 trusts had not complied with 5 or more alerts, some of which were years past the deadline. Full implementation of all alerts by the deadline given is supposed to be mandatory. Each alert not implemented leaves patients at unnecessary risk and it is inevitable that non-compliance with alerts has already resulted in patients being unnecessarily harmed or even killed."

Please read again the last sentence of that extract, and think about it.
The full report can be downloaded from the AvMA website.
