Patient's safety - challenges for polish heath care system. Part 1
Patient safety issue is one of the most important factors influencing the quality of healthcare. Since the end of the 20th century the level of interest in this particular matter changed. From the niche topic, with a small part of the medical community genuinely concerned, it evolved to a range of global and superior matter. The main objective of this paper is to analyse patient safety issue from the systemic perspective, as well as discuss the main factors that have the influence on the insufficiency of the level of safety despite the implementation of a series of systemic measures.
