Methods to measure patient safety include structure, process and outcome measures, safety attitude and climate surveys, focus groups, storytelling, executive walk rounds, and external review. Ideally, measures of patient safety should be meaningful, science based, psychometrically sound, feasible, and actionable. Accurate and timely data feedback to caregivers is critical to effect required changes. A balanced set of patient safety measures provides valuable data to guide efforts to improve perinatal patient safety.
