ABSTRACT
The article reports updates on the National Patient Safety Goals (NPSGs) for 2010 in the U.S. It is stated that the Joint Commission has not added the list of the NPSGs for 2010, instead, it has been refined and shortened. However, the list will surely have changes in the future. Darryl Rich, Joint Commission Surveyor, notes that the changes include the holding of the NPSG 8 until 2011, that deals with medication reconciliation.
