In the United States, medical errors are a major cause of death and a critical public health issue. Finding a reliable cause of mistakes and then offering a reliable, workable solution that reduces the likelihood of an ongoing issue are difficult tasks. Patient safety can be raised by acknowledging unfortunate events when they happen, acquiring knowledge about them, and striving to steer clear of them as well. Effectiveness in post-medical errors follow-up procedures is a pertinent and significant study topic for a number of reasons. In a hospital or maybe even a doctor's office, you may speak and engage with a receptionist, nurse, doctor, or maybe even a radiologist or another medical professional. However, behind the scenes, a health care administrator ensures that the organization operates effectively.

Ones desire to become a health care administrator may stem from a specific passion for the field, which allows them to have the ability to touch lives by assuring the finest patient experience. Also, being able to positively influence others is a goal of all healthcare administrators. Without a medical degree or prior experience providing direct patient care, individuals can make a difference from behind the scenes. The barriers and facilitators in utilizing best practices in follow-up actions after medical errors have the potential to be discovered and analyzed through research, along with the effectiveness and results of these actions in various settings and circumstances.

The development of consistent, open-minded, and ethical norms, rules, and standards for follow-up procedures may also benefit from such study. In conclusion, this research may help someone assist boost patient safety and the standard quality of treatment while also encouraging an environment of responsibility, growth, and progress in the medical field.
