Biden calls for hospitals to 'double down' on patient safety
Vice President Joe Biden called for increased focus on error and infection reduction in the healthcare industry and more government incentives to facilitate them, according to Kaiser Health News. Historically, Biden said at this weekend's Patient Safety, Science and Technology Summit in Irvine, California, the healthcare system has not placed enough emphasis on the connection between patient safety and overall quality, but added that recent efforts to reduce readmissions and cut hospital-acquired infections indicate progress.
