In health care setting, damage can be triggered by series of faults or adverse events. The health organizations
and social welfare services, are absolutely liable for quality health care and patient safety. The objective of
patient care should complete abstinence of patients from any unessential or potential harm. The aim of the
essay is to critically compare the national policies of two countries, Finland and India on ‘’Patient safety’’.
Also, to examine and compare the relevant actors and stakeholders, including their interests and power; the
pertinent factors that lead to the policy formation and the process by which the policy was implemented
and monitored in both countries which are so diverse from each other; India being developing and Finland,
developed. This paper also discusses the individual analysis of both countries, following a brief comparison
of similarities and dissimilarities between policies of a developing and a developed country. After critically
analyzing policies of the countries stark different from each other, the major dissimilarity noticed was the
gap between the developed and the developing country and the sensitivity of the problem perceived which
is described in detail further in the paper.
