Abstract

The patient safety is not threatened” A discourse analysis of the patient safety discourse

The purpose of this study was to analyze the patient safety discourse through two different text-based materials. Three county councils / regions patient safety stories from 2015 and 19 articles on “nurses” and “patient safety” in the local press written in 2015 were analyzed with a discourse theory ambition. This is to see if there were inconsistencies and conflicts within the patient safety discourse. A patient safety story is by law required to be written every year for practitioners of health care.Security, interoperability, results, quality and patient safety culture was found as nodalpoints in the patient safety stories and the study clearly shows that there is a big difference between the materials in the attribution of meaning to the found nodalpoints. The patient safety stories uses rationality and bureaucratic jargon to ascribe meaning to the nodalpoints, and puts great faith in the measurement of risk, while those expressed by and about nurses in local press is very based on emotional arguments and an experience that the care provided is not secure due to shortage of nurses. There is therefore great antagonism within the patient safety discourse and the media can therefore be said to have an important role to challenge the otherwise hegemonic conception of what patient safety is and how patient safety is described in the patient safety stories.
