AHRQ has released the Network of Patient Safety Databases (NPSD) Chartbook 2021, which offers an overview of nonidentifiable, aggregated patient safety event and near-miss information that has been voluntarily reported by AHRQ-listed Patient Safety Organizations, including a section on nursing homes. The Chartbook outlines the extent of harm reported, distribution of patient safety events, near misses, and unsafe conditions. The iteration of the Chartbook contains reports not included in the prior NPSD Chartbook.
