to demonstrate initiatives of hospitals within the Trnava Region in collaboration
with the Faculty of HS and SW TU

Incidence of adverse events was
from restricted sample (100 eventually 53) of medical records audited.
Adverse events were connected with longer LOS (p<0,001) and in 50 % were preventable,
but several limitations of retrospective methods was revealed.
Despite limitations of presented studies it is evident that:
Information is actively searched
Reporting persons are trained
Competences are set up
Errors are analyzed systematically
New ideas are welcome
Information is confidential and unused
Providers of information are punished
Nobody accepts responsibility
Errors are not explained
New ideas are repressed
to shame or blame,
it's about improving health care”
