It is commonly stated that every 10th patient receive a preventable care injury. Every 10th care bed is occupied by such a patient, at a cost in Sweden alone of 0.8 billion USD a year. Surgery and infections after surgery are responsible for the majority of them.
More and better training can prevent harm to patients. A pilot needs flight hours in a simulator before flying a plane, doctors and nurses also need training hours before being able to operate safely on patients.
