Safe care

Patient safety is focused on prevention and the early discovery of risks for unwanted incidents.

Prevention of care-related infections is an important part of the quality and safety work within all types of care and nursing. Adherence to basic hygiene and clothing rules is followed up several times per year, and the number of care-related infections is also followed several times every year. This has contributed to a situation with relatively few care-related infections and infections with multiresistant bacteria.
