Black adult patients have worse patient safety in hospitals – Consumer Health News

More Information “Our previous work suggested increasing the racial diversity of patients that high-quality hospitals serve or concentrating resources to improve quality of care at low-performing hospitals would narrow racial inequities in care,” Gangopadhyaya said in a statement. “This study’s findings show that achieving racial equity in patient safety requires transforming the way care is delivered within hospitals as well.”

The researchers found that Black adult patients experienced significantly worse patient safety relative to White patients in the same age group, of the same gender, and treated in the same hospital for six out of 11 patient safety indicators, including four out of seven surgery-related patient safety indicators. Compared with Black patients, White patients experienced significantly worse quality of care in the same hospital on two patient safety indicators; quality of care was similar for Black and White patients on three patient safety indicators. Adjustment for patient insurance coverage type had little impact on differences in patient safety risks. Similar results were seen in analyses limiting patient populations to Medicare-covered patients only.
