Doctor in the House: Safe Health Workers = Safe Patients

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. This year's World Patient Safety Day focuses on 'Health Worker Safety: A Priority for Patient Safety'. The COVID-19 pandemic has unveiled the huge challenges and risks health workers are facing globally including health care associated infections, violence, stigma, psychological and emotional disturbances, illness and even death. Furthermore, working in stressful environments makes health workers more prone to errors which can lead to patient harm. Dato' Prof Dr Adeeba Kamarulzaman,  Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Professor of Medicine and Infectious Diseases, University of Malaya, joins Dr George to discuss how safe health workers equal safe patients, and what health systems need to do to prioritise health workers' safety.
