Patient safety is a new healthcare discipline that emphasizes the reporting, analysis, and prevention of medical error that often leads to adverse healthcare events. Patient safety has become a critical issue globally due to the recognition or high incidence of errors in healthcare. The greatest challenge is to fill the gap between what we know and what is actually done. Further, complications are also due to the prevailing myths and perceptions about the healthcare while most of these errors are unintentional.
