Researchers developed ensuring transfer safety of patients program, which included organizing continuing medical education, establishing critical patient transfer safety evaluation, establishing a standard resuscitation first-aid kit evaluation, establishing items for quality control and case discussions, and purchasing portable electrocardiography monitors. Following the ensuring transfer safety of patients' program application, the results showed that transfers safety of patients improved from 92.1% to 100%, the insight of hospital staff towards safety of patients was 100% and no adverse events or complaints occurred. Results lead researchers to conclude implementing the ensuring transfer safety of patients program could effectively enhance patient transfer safety. In addition, the program could provide personnel checks on workflow to achieve the goal of improving patient care and patient safety.
