Abstract

Increased complexity in healthcare environments, together with scientific and technological advances, require advanced research and resource support, and need an approach based on human factors and ergonomics. Meyer Children’s Hospital has instituted a Strategic Operational Unit called “ERGOMeyer”, to support Risk Management for the safety and wellbeing of healthcare workers and patients, to improve the performance of the organization and to achieve international standards of safety and quality of care. The ERGOMeyer Team operates in the areas of Human Factors and Ergonomics, Clinical Risk Management, Simulation in paediatrics, Health, Safety and Environment. In the four years of activity, important projects have been carried out regarding prevention of infections, patient identification, safety in surgery, and the re-organization of healthcare environments.
