Qualitative health care implies the organisation of health resources in a most efficient way, in order to satisfy patients’ needs for the safe treatment. There are several levels of quality in health, and the safe health care in the most basic level. It comprises, amongst other things, identification, analysis and correction of the adverse events, with the purpose to make health care safer and to bring health risks for the patients down to the minimum. Over time, it has become recognizable that adverse events are not often the consequence of individual omissions, but the cumulative result of many reasons. Therefore, some organizational and managerial steps should be undertaken in order to secure patients safety and prevent adverse events.
