Figure 1: Schematic representation of key factors associated with patient harm during intrahospital transfers. A number of patient factors (e.g., acuity of illness/severity of injury); system factors (e.g., environment change, lack of safety procedures, inadequate facilities, equipment deficiencies or failures); and personnel factors (e.g., poor communication, inadequate training, insufficient staffing, lack of supervision). The above factors frequently interact in a synergistic fashion to result in potential or actual patient harm
