In a recent survey conducted by PSQH and HealthLeaders Media, 100 hospitals and health systems provided insight on where they see the current state of patient identification practices and procedures at their facilities. Though 98% of the respondents indicated that positive patient identification was a high to medium priority, roughly 89% of respondents say that their patient ID systems are less than 100% accurate. With such a priority on getting it right, why are we still getting it wrong?
