Safety and quality

Safety in health care is about avoidance of patient harm. Quality is about whether the health care achieved the desired effect for the patient, and whether it was delivered in line with standards or guidelines. Quality can also refer to whether the health care was delivered in a coordinated way, and whether it was patient-focussed. The information presented is for two safety indicators, Staphylococcus aureus bloodstream infections and hand hygiene.
