Research focusing on serious complications after major surgery shows that when patients deteriorate after surgery, their chances of survival depend on how quickly and how well clinical teams react (Burke et al., 2021). Studies have suggested a human factors and ergonomics (HFE) approach to enhance post-operative care, which will consequently reduce failure-to-rescue (FTR) rates (Johnston et al., 2014). FTR has been defined as the occurrence of death after a severe, potentially preventable complication and is recognised as an important hospital quality care metric and an indicator of how effectively the resources and processes of a hospital are coordinated to overcome postoperative adverse events (Hornor & Bilimoria. 2017). FTR has been associated with hospital factors rather than patient characteristics (Ghaferi et al., 2009; Silber et al., 2007), calling for the unpacking and redesigning of post-operative care.
