Show 952: Why Is Flying Safer Than Health Care? Developing a Safety Culture

Show 952: Why Is Flying Safer Than Health Care? Developing a Safety Culture

$ 0.00

Airplane crashes are extremely rare, because the airline industry figured out a few decades ago how to encourage a culture of safety in which anyone on the team is encouraged to speak up if they notice something amiss. Yet, some people are still nervous about getting on a plane. Health care has never gotten the media attention that accompanies a plane crash. Perhaps because of that, hospitals fly under the radar. Firm figures are hard to come by, but the best estimates place deaths due to health care harm around 500,000 a year in the US–equivalent to 1,000 jets dropping out of the sky. What could health care learn from aviation safety?
