Frontline hospital workers and the worker safety/patient safety nexus.
This article reported on panels and small-group discussions from a day-long workshop held in Washington, D.C., on October 25, 2012, to explore whether and how hospital-based frontline health care workers (HCWs) affect patient safety and how they experience safety in their work settings. Conference sponsors included AHRQ, and workshop sessions focused on the intersection of worker safety and patient safety and on specific steps that health care institutions have used to implement a culture of safety in the workplace.
