Abstract

PURPOSE: The aim of this survey is to understand the current status of patient safety and performance of radiological
examination process in radiology resident training hospitals in Taiwan.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: We designed questionnaires for radiological examination process, which were mailed to
19 medical centers and 17 non-medical centers of the radiology resident training hospitals in Taiwan.
RESULTS: The response rate was 94.7% (18/19) of medical centers and 100% (17/17) of non-medical centers. Items that
were elected to be considered as important to patient safety were, in order, (1) to confirm the patient’s identity, (2) to check
informed consent, (3) to establish high risk reminder system (18/18 of medical centers, reporting rate, 0.29 ± 0.46%/mon;
17/17 of non-medical centers; 2.01 ± 1.65%/mon), (4) to record patient fall down (medical centers, 83% (15/18);
non-medical centers, 47%(8/17), (5) to record large amount contrast-medium extravasations (medical center, 7.58 ± 8.08/yr;
non-medical center, 1.06 ± 1.35/yr) and severe allergic reactions (medical center, 0.38±0.61/y; non-medical center, 0.14 ±
0.36/yr). In addition, the film rejected rate was 2.42 ± 1.82% of medical centers and 2.56 ± 1.72% of non-medical centers.
As for reporting rate, most of the medical centers accounted average 7 days for out-patient clinic, 3 days for in-patients, and
1 day for emergency; whereas non-medical centers took average 7 days for all patients.
CONCLUSION: Difference exists in patient safety performance between medical centers and non-medical centers of
the radiology resident training hospitals during radiology examination process in Taiwan. Our radiological society
should establish a guideline and accreditation policy about standardization of patient safety in the radiological
examination process for all resident training hospitals in Taiwan.
