In many ways, error and harm were largely marginal to mainstream health services research and health care policies. However, it is important to note that these issues had been the focus of several social science research studies (Hughes 1951, Freidson 1970, Millman 1976, Bosk 1979, Paget 1988). By the later 1990s, almost a decade after the seminal Harvard study, a sea-change occurred. Heightened awareness of patient safety was created through the publication of the USA舗s To Err is Human (Institute of Medicine 1999), the UK舗s An Organization with a Memory (Department of Health 2000), New Zealand舗s Review of the Processes Concerning Adverse Medical Events (Cull 2001), and Australia舗s Iatrogenic Injury in Australia (Runciman and Moller 2001).
Drach-Zahavy and Somech discuss the gap between policy and practice, by examining nurses舗 decision-making and use of heuristics in rationalizing their actions. They suggest that non-adherence to rules and guidelines is not something that occurs in an ad hoc fashion, but is systematic and predictable. Mesman continues this focus on the minutiae of health care practice, focusing on what makes safe practice (opposed to what causes errors). She finds that safety is produced, and is a form of medicine-in-action.
