In an effort to reduce and eliminate errors, Pennsylvania’s Patient Safety Authority (http://patientsafety.pa.gov/) collects and analyzes data on serious events (including HAIs) occurring in hospitals, ambulatory surgery facilities, birthing centers, and abortion facilities. Based on these analyses, problems are identified and recommendations are made for changes in practice. The articles in this collection were written by their staff in order to bring these data and recommendations to AJN readers.
