Abstract

Technological advances in urology have led to many beneficial outcomes for patients. Unfortunately, increasing the complexity of a procedure may make surgical interventions even more unpredictable, increasing the possibility of error, with its detrimental effect on patient safety. In this article, the authors highlight the fundamental components of the patient safety process and recommend measures to maintain and enhance safer patient care. Copyright © 2012 John Wiley & Sons
