This week in #patientsafety, PPAHS archived select articles that we were able to get featured on Advance for Nurses. From around the web, Italy’s lawmakers recognized patient safety as a fundamental right, Health Quality Ontario released a report on opioids in the Canadian province, and research from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine shows earlier is better when it comes to sepsis treatment.
Archiving PPAHS Articles on Advance for Nurses. Unfortunately, Advance for Nurses announced earlier this year that it would be winding down. They have featured PPAHS articles in the past, and as those web pages become inactive, we made the decision to archive them here. We recommend re-reading them this week because they are still incredibly relevant in 2017.
- Six Nursing Lessons. July 13, 2015.
- Protecting Post-Operative Obese Patients. April 29, 2015.

From Around the Web:
Italy recognises patient safety as a fundamental right. This recognition could be a major step forward for patient safety in a G8 country like Italy.
Opioid Prescribing in Ontario. Health Quality Ontario released a new report that examines the use of prescription opioids in Canada’s province of Ontario.
Sepsis treatment: Earlier action in hospitals can mean the difference between life and death. Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine analyzed data from 50,000 patients from 149 New York hospitals to find out whether earlier intervention actually helps combat sepsis.
