Patient Safety Measures: Complications
The first phase of Patient Safety Measures - Complications Endorsement Maintenance project focused on medication safety, venous thromboembolism, surgery, and care coordination.  It’s estimated that preventable errors cost the United States $17-$29 billion per year in healthcare expenses, lost worker productivity, and disability.
