Comparison of coding between F1 and hospital data

F1Hospital
Proactive prevention
Formal handover procedures
Using briefings and checklists as methods for preventing errors
Clearly defined roles
Team practice with colleagues
Poor awareness of handover protocols
Lack of awareness that handover was a potential threat to patient safety
Historical/personal working practice
Limited ongoing team training
Active management
Use of technology to log and transfer information reliability between locationsPoor communication of information (ad hoc)
Poor team coordination
Lack of consistency in handover practice
Post hoc learning from analysis
Analysis of electronic data records as a methods for identifying existing and future problemsAnecdotal suggestions, no formal evaluation of handover success (accuracy, efficiency, safety, etc)
