In developing countries, the probability of patients being harmed in hospitals is higher than in industrialized nations. The risk of health care-associated infection in some developing countries is as much as 20 times higher than in developed countries. The report further states that in recent years, countries have increasingly recognized the importance of improving patient safety.
In 2002, WHO Member States agreed on a World Health Assembly resolution on patient safety. Mrs McClachlan explained more about the importance of improving patient safety. That interview was brought to you by the National department of health and funded by the European Union. For further information please contact the Western Cape College of Nursing on (021) 684 1203/2 or send a fax on (021) 638 6988.
We closed off the show with an interview with Dr Heydn Bellardie – an orthodontist from the Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic at the Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital. The clinic is the only one of its kind in South Africa that meets the World Health Organization requirements in relation to the services it offers.
Last week they celebrated 50 years of life changing existence. The clinic performs approximately 45-50 primary surgeries and about 20 secondary surgeries annually. About 20% of the primary surgeries are on patients with isolated cleft lips.

And last but least we were joined by Phillipa Douglas – Executive Director for the Organ Donor Foundation. We were talking about organ donation. The Organ Donor Foundation is a non-profit charity, established to address the critical shortage of organ and tissue donors in South Africa through awareness and education campaigns. According to the foundation, currently there are over 3,500 South Africans waiting for organ and tissue transplants. Sadly, as a result of this critical shortage less than 1,000 of them will receive a transplant and the "Gift of Life" this year. Phillipa explained more on how one can go about in giving the “Gift of Life”. Remember there is no cost charged to register as an organ donor.
