Errors or mistakes committed by health professionals which result in harm to the patient. They include errors in diagnosis (DIAGNOSTIC ERRORS), errors in the administration of drugs and other medications (MEDICATION ERRORS), errors in the performance of surgical procedures, in the use of other types of therapy, in the use of equipment, and in the interpretation of laboratory findings. Medical errors are differentiated from MALPRACTICE in that the former are regarded as honest mistakes or accidents while the latter is the result of negligence, reprehensible ignorance, or criminal intent.

A sultanate on the southeast coast of the Arabian peninsula. Its capital is Masqat. Before the 16th century it was ruled by independent emirs but was captured and controlled by the Portuguese 1508-1648. In 1741 it was recovered by a descendent of Yemen's imam. After its decline in the 19th century, it became virtually a political and economic dependency within the British Government of India, retaining close ties with Great Britain by treaty from 1939 to 1970 when it achieved autonomy. The name was recorded by Pliny in the 1st century A.D. as Omana, said to be derived from the founder of the state, Oman ben Ibrahim al-Khalil.

Complications after carotid endarterectomy are related to surgical errors in less than one-fifth of cases. Swedvasc--The Swedish Vascular Registry and The Quality Committee for Carotid Artery Surgery. (2/1033)

OBJECTIVES: to study possible relations between indications, contraindications and surgical technique and stroke and/or death within 30 days of carotid endarterectomy (CEA). DESIGN: analysis of hospital records for patients identified in a national vascular registry. METHOD: during 1995-1996, 1518 patients were reported to the Swedish Vascular Registry - Swedvasc. Among these the sixty-five with a stroke and/or death within 30 days were selected for study. Complete surgical records were reviewed by three approved reviewers using predetermined criteria for indications and possible errors. RESULTS: an error of surgical technique or postoperative management was found in eleven patients (17%). In six cases (9%) the indication was inappropriate or there was an obvious contraindication. The indication was questionable in fourteen (21.5%). Half of the patients (52.5%) had surgery for an appropriate indication, and no contraindication or error in surgical technique or management was identified. CONCLUSION: more than half the complications of CEA represent the "method cost", i.e. the indication, risk and surgical technique were correct. However, the stroke and/or death rate might be reduced if all operations conformed to agreed criteria.  (+info)

Serious hazards of transfusion (SHOT) initiative: analysis of the first two annual reports. (3/1033)

OBJECTIVE: To receive and collate reports of death or major complications of transfusion of blood or components. DESIGN: Haematologists were invited confidentially to report deaths and major complications after blood transfusion during October 1996 to September 1998. SETTING: Hospitals in United Kingdom and Ireland. SUBJECTS: Patients who died or experienced serious complications, as defined below, associated with transfusion of red cells, platelets, fresh frozen plasma, or cryoprecipitate. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Death, "wrong" blood transfused to patient, acute and delayed transfusion reactions, transfusion related acute lung injury, transfusion associated graft versus host disease, post-transfusion purpura, and infection transmitted by transfusion. Circumstances relating to these cases and relative frequency of complications. RESULTS: Over 24 months, 366 cases were reported, of which 191 (52%) were "wrong blood to patient" episodes. Analysis of these revealed multiple errors of identification, often beginning when blood was collected from the blood bank. There were 22 deaths from all causes, including three from ABO incompatibility. There were 12 infections: four bacterial (one fatal), seven viral, and one fatal case of malaria. During the second 12 months, 164/424 hospitals (39%) submitted a "nil to report" return. CONCLUSIONS: Transfusion is now extremely safe, but vigilance is needed to ensure correct identification of blood and patient. Staff education should include awareness of ABO incompatibility and bacterial contamination as causes of life threatening reactions to blood.  (+info)

Notification of real-time clinical alerts generated by pharmacy expert systems. (4/1033)

We developed and implemented a strategy for notifying clinical pharmacists of alerts generated in real-time by two pharmacy expert systems: one for drug dosing and the other for adverse drug event prevention. Display pagers were selected as the preferred notification method and a concise, yet readable, format for displaying alert data was developed. This combination of real-time alert generation and notification via display pagers was shown to be efficient and effective in a 30-day trial.  (+info)

Impact of guidelines implemented in a paris university hospital: application to the use of antiemetics by cancer patients. (5/1033)

AIMS: To assess the impact with time of guidelines on antiemetic use in an 850-bed Paris university hospital with a high proportion of cancer patients. METHODS: Guidelines on the use of antiemetics available in cancer chemotherapy were drafted according to the Delphi technique. Their implementation was based upon a patient-specific antiemetic prescription form. To assess the impact of guideline implementation over time, discrepancies between current practice and the guidelines were compared before guideline implementation (between March and August 1995) and after implementation (between March and August 1997, and March and August 1998). RESULTS: Before the Delphi panel's guidelines were implemented, 5-HT3 antagonists were inappropriately administered in 70% of cases. After guideline implementation, this proportion dropped significantly (P<0.0001, Fisher's exact test) to 22% between March and August 1997 and 28% between March and August 1998. CONCLUSIONS: Implementation of guidelines seems to have resulted in significant changes with time, although a causal relationship has not been demonstrated. The development of guidelines by our hospital's multidisciplinary working group helped the various consultants to adjust medical practices to take account of these changes.  (+info)

Extent and determinants of error in doctors' prognoses in terminally ill patients: prospective cohort study. (6/1033)

OBJECTIVE: To describe doctors' prognostic accuracy in terminally ill patients and to evaluate the determinants of that accuracy. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. SETTING: Five outpatient hospice programmes in Chicago. PARTICIPANTS: 343 doctors provided survival estimates for 468 terminally ill patients at the time of hospice referral. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Patients' estimated and actual survival. RESULTS: Median survival was 24 days. Only 20% (92/468) of predictions were accurate (within 33% of actual survival); 63% (295/468) were overoptimistic and 17% (81/468) were overpessimistic. Overall, doctors overestimated survival by a factor of 5.3. Few patient or doctor characteristics were associated with prognostic accuracy. Male patients were 58% less likely to have overpessimistic predictions. Non-oncology medical specialists were 326% more likely than general internists to make overpessimistic predictions. Doctors in the upper quartile of practice experience were the most accurate. As duration of doctor-patient relationship increased and time since last contact decreased, prognostic accuracy decreased. CONCLUSION: Doctors are inaccurate in their prognoses for terminally ill patients and the error is systematically optimistic. The inaccuracy is, in general, not restricted to certain kinds of doctors or patients. These phenomena may be adversely affecting the quality of care given to patients near the end of life.  (+info)

Reducing errors made by emergency physicians in interpreting radiographs: longitudinal study. (7/1033)

OBJECTIVES: To reduce errors made in the interpretation of radiographs in an emergency department. DESIGN: Longitudinal study. SETTING: Hospital emergency department. INTERVENTIONS: All staff reviewed all clinically significant discrepancies at monthly meetings. A file of clinically significant errors was created; the file was used for teaching. Later a team redesigned the process. A system was developed for interpreting radiographs that would be followed regardless of the day of the week or time of day. All standard radiographs were brought directly to the emergency physician for immediate interpretation. Radiologists reviewed the films within 12 hours as a quality control measure, and if a significant misinterpretation was found patients were asked to return. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Reduction in number of clinically significant errors (such as missed fractures or foreign bodies) on radiographs read in the emergency department. Data on the error rate for radiologists and the effect of the recall procedure were not available so reliability modelling was used to assess the effect of these on overall safety. RESULTS: After the initial improvements the rate of false negative errors fell from 3% (95% confidence interval 2.8% to 3.2%) to 1.2% (1.03% to 1.37%). After the processes were redesigned it fell further to 0.3% (0.26% to 0.34%). Reliability modelling showed that the number of potential adverse effects per 1000 cases fell from 19 before the improvements to 3 afterwards and unmitigated adverse effects fell from 2.2/1000 before to 0.16/1000 afterwards, assuming 95% success in calling patients back. CONCLUSION: Systems of radiograph interpretation that optimise the skills of all clinicians involved and contain reliable processes for mitigating errors can reduce error rates substantially.  (+info)

Incidence and types of preventable adverse events in elderly patients: population based review of medical records. (8/1033)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the incidence and types of preventable adverse events in elderly patients. DESIGN: Review of random sample of medical records in two stage process by nurses and physicians to detect adverse events. Two study investigators then judged preventability. SETTING: Hospitals in US states of Utah and Colorado, excluding psychiatric and Veterans Administration hospitals. SUBJECTS: 15 000 hospitalised patients discharged in 1992. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Incidence of preventable adverse events (number of preventable events per 100 discharges) in elderly patients (>/=65 years old) and non-elderly patients (16-64 years). RESULTS: When results were extrapolated to represent all discharges in 1992 in both states, non-elderly patients had 8901 adverse events (incidence 2.80% (SE 0.18%)) compared with 7419 (5.29% (0.37%)) among elderly patients (P=0.001). Non-elderly patients had 5038 preventable adverse events (incidence 1.58% (0.14%)) compared with 4134 (2.95% (0.28%)) in elderly patients (P=0.001). Elderly patients had a higher incidence of preventable events related to medical procedures (such as thoracentesis, cardiac catheterisation) (0.69% (0.14%) v 0.13% (0.04%)), preventable adverse drug events (0.63% (0.14%) v 0.17% (0.05%)), and preventable falls (0.10% (0.06%) v 0.01% (0.02%)). In multivariate analyses, adjusted for comorbid illnesses and case mix, age was not an independent predictor of preventable adverse events. CONCLUSIONS: Preventable adverse events were more common among elderly patients, probably because of the clinical complexity of their care rather than age based discrimination. Preventable adverse drug events, events related to medical procedures, and falls were especially common in elderly patients and should be targets for efforts to prevent errors.  (+info)

Approximately 10% of admissions to acute-care hospitals are associated with an adverse event. Analysis of incident reports helps to understand how and why incidents occur and can inform policy and practice for safer care. Unfortunately our capacity to monitor and respond to incident reports in a timely manner is limited by the sheer volumes of data collected. In this study, we aim to evaluate the feasibility of using multiclass classification to automate the identification of patient safety incidents in hospitals. Text based classifiers were applied to identify 10 incident types and 4 severity levels. Using the one-versus-one (OvsO) and one-versus-all (OvsA) ensemble strategies, we evaluated regularized logistic regression, linear support vector machine (SVM) and SVM with a radial-basis function (RBF) kernel. Classifiers were trained and tested with

RESULTS: In the 2006 KID, 22.3% of pediatric inpatients had 1 chronic condition, 9.8% had 2 chronic conditions, and 12.0% had ≥3 chronic conditions. The overall medical error rate per 100 discharges was 3.0 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 2.8-3.3); it was 5.3 (95% CI: 4.9-5.7) in children with chronic conditions and 1.3 (95% CI: 1.2-1.3) in children without chronic conditions. The medical error rate per 1000 inpatient days was also higher in children with chronic conditions. The association between chronic conditions and medical errors remained statistically significant in logistic regression models adjusting for patient characteristics, hospital characteristics, disease severity, and length of stay. In the adjusted model, the odds ratio of medical errors for children with 1 chronic condition was 1.40 (95% CI: 1.32-1.48); for children with 2 conditions, the OR was 1.55 (95% CI: 1.45-1.66); and for children with 3 conditions, the OR was 1.66 (95% CI: 1.53-1.81). ...
These data from a nationally representative dataset provide some of the first data regarding the general problem of hospital-reported medical errors in pediatric inpatients. By using a nationally representative inpatient sample, it is possible to discuss patterns in the broad group of pediatric patients. We now have an understanding that hospital-reported medical error in hospitalized children is a relatively rare event occurring in ,3% of hospital discharges. This rate has increased from 1988 to 1991, but remained stable from 1991 to 1997. Furthermore, children with increasingly complex medical care have higher medical error rates, which is consistent with data derived from studies on adult patients. Children with medical errors also had higher associated LOS and mortality rates throughout the years studied. Therefore, this work primarily provides an important reference point for subsequent and more specialized studies of specific patient groups such as children with chronic illnesses who may ...
Both the IOM and QuIC reports emphasize the importance of collaboration between federal, state, and private-sector stakeholders. According to the National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP), states responded to the IOM report with 45 bills related to medical errors, of which eight had been enacted by July. Only 20 states, however, have mandatory reporting programs related to patient safety.. States are looking for guidance, says Jill Rosenthal, an NASHP policy analyst. Theyre interested in standardization, but they dont want to see that developed at the federal level without state input. Standardization, both in collecting data on medical errors and in promulgating best practices, is a prerequisite for preventing errors from reoccurring.. Even states with relatively robust mandatory reporting systems are struggling to define for providers what constitutes a medical error. The Pennsylvania Department of Health, for example, sent licensed health care facilities a list of questions and ...
According to some observers, the CDC instructs doctors to only list medical conditions as the cause of death, and its coding system does not account for medical mistakes whether diagnostic errors, poor judgment or communication breakdowns. However, the CDC notes that complications arising from medical treatment are listed on death certificate, but only the condition that was being treated is listed as the underlying cause of death.. As a result, the public is not aware of the impact of medical errors, and the authors of the study are calling for death certificates to specifically ask if a complication that could have been prevented contributed to the death. The failure to report medical errors ultimately hinders research that could be helpful in reducing the number of deaths by providing more resources aimed at patient safety.. Ultimately, whether the study will prompt the CDC to include medical errors on its annual list of the leading causes of death remains to be seen. In the meantime, ...
Patient safety is defined as the avoidance, prevention, and amelioration of adverse outcomes or injuries stemming from the processes of healthcare,1 while a patient safety incident is defined as any unintended event or hazardous condition resulting from the process of care, rather than due to the patients underlying disease, that led or could have led to unintended health consequences for the patient or healthcare processes linked to safety outcomes.2Patient safety research has traditionally focused on hospital-based specialist settings, but there is growing evidence that patient safety in primary care can also be problematic.3-5 Patient safety incidents related to prescription of medication, diagnostic errors and communication failures are frequently encountered in primary and secondary care (ranging from 2% to 10% of consultations).6-9 These safety incidents might be more common or severe in vulnerable patient groups such as older patients with two or more long-term conditions (known as ...
Using medical data collected over an eight-year period, patient safety experts at Johns Hopkins have calculated that medical errors are now the third leading cause of death in the US. At more than 250,000 deaths per year attributed to medical mistakes, this number exceeds the Center for Disease Control and Preventions (CDC) third most common cause of death - respiratory disease - which is responsible for almost 150,000 deaths each year.. According to the researchers, the CDCs data does not reflect medical errors, which are often not listed on the death certificate. The authors of the paper - which was published in The BMJ - are urging regulators to update the system used to classify cause of death on these documents.. Incidence rates for deaths directly attributable to medical care gone awry havent been recognized in any standardized method for collecting national statistics, said Dr. Martin Makary, professor of surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and an authority on ...

This retrospective study in the Netherlands encompasses three national major adverse event studies. These authors previously reported that the adverse event rate in the Netherlands had increased between 2004 and 2008. In this current study, there was no change in overall adverse event rates in 2011/2012 compared to 2008, while preventable adverse events were markedly reduced by 45%.

For physicians, the combination of long hours, often grueling medical procedures and lives on the line can create an enormous amount of stress. That can take a toll on mental health, and many doctors say they suffer from depression. A Medscape survey from last year indicated 71% of doctors are suffering from some form of burnout, depression or both.. Up to 400 doctors in the U.S. kill themselves every year, according to a study on that topic. And given depression can dull mental acuity, that puts clinicians at risk for committing medical errors.. Researchers from the University of Michigan School of Medicine, Federal University of So Paulo, the University of Sao Paulo and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center undertook a survey of prior studies linking medical errors to depression among physicians.. For the most part, the studies showed a fairly consistent link between physician depression and medical errors. Altogether, they showed that physicians who were depressed were nearly twice as likely ...

In our survey, extended-duration work shifts were associated with an increased risk of significant medical errors, adverse events, and attentional failures in interns across the United States. These results have important public policy implications for postgraduate medical education.
Safety is a global concept that encompasses efficiency, security of care, reactivity of caregivers, and satisfaction of patients and relatives. Patient safety has emerged as a major target for healthcare improvement. Quality assurance is a complex task, and patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) are more likely than other hospitalized patients to experience medical errors, due to the complexity of their conditions, need for urgent interventions, and considerable workload fluctuation. Medication errors are the most common medical errors and can induce adverse events. Two approaches are available for evaluating and improving quality-of-care: the room-for-improvement model, in which problems are identified, plans are made to resolve them, and the results of the plans are measured; and the monitoring model, in which quality indicators are defined as relevant to potential problems and then monitored periodically. Indicators that reflect structures, processes, or outcomes have been developed by medical

Patient safety is vital in patient care. There is a lack of studies on medical errors in primary care settings. The aim of the study is to determine the extent of diagnostic inaccuracies and management errors in public funded primary care clinics. This was a cross-sectional study conducted in twelve public funded primary care clinics in Malaysia. A total of 1753 medical records were randomly selected in 12 primary care clinics in 2007 and were reviewed by trained family physicians for diagnostic, management and documentation errors, potential errors causing serious harm and likelihood of preventability of such errors. The majority of patient encounters (81%) were with medical assistants. Diagnostic errors were present in 3.6% (95% CI: 2.2, 5.0) of medical records and management errors in 53.2% (95% CI: 46.3, 60.2). For management errors, medication errors were present in 41.1% (95% CI: 35.8, 46.4) of records, investigation errors in 21.7% (95% CI: 16.5, 26.8) and decision making errors in 14.5% (95% CI:

By Megan Headley. During her early research on patient safety over a decade ago, focusing on medical error disclosure and ways to improve communication with patients and families after harmful events, Sigall K. Bell, MD, director of patient safety and quality initiatives for the Raskin Fellow in Medical Education at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, began to notice a pattern.. I started noticing that some of the stories of harmed patients and families shared a common narrative: I knew something was wrong, but I couldnt say anything or, I didnt know how or who to tell or, I tried to say something, but it didnt work. This resonated with themes we heard from interviewed patients and families who experienced medical error, which included a sense of guilt: If only I had been there, or, If only I had said something, Bell recalls.. As it turns out, clinicians may be overlooking, if not actively discouraging, input from a significant patient safety resource: patient ...

While our hospitals save lives every day, they are also the third leading cause of avoidable death every year. In Canada, medical errors and hospital-acquired infections claim between 30,000 and 60,000 lives annually. Thousands more are injured. But to the public, these incidents are largely invisible.
Since the Institute of Medicine (IOM) report To Err is Human in 1999, patient safety and education to prevent medical errors has been critical to healthcare. Additionally, regulatory and accreditation bodies have set standards to improve the quality of health care organizations to help provide safe patient care across all settings. Despite numerous efforts, medical error rates do not seem to be improving. For example, in 2000, the IOM report stated that up to 98,000 deaths occur as a result of medical errors.1 More recently, Makary and Daniel state that the numbers were actually underestimated and report a mean rate of death from medical error of 251,454 a year. This would make medical errors the 3rd most common cause of death in the United States for 2013.2 ...
Since the researchers looked retrospectively at the discharge summaries, they were able to see if test results reported after discharge called for a change in the patient treatment plan or management. We found that a huge number -- 72 percent -- of test results requiring treatment change were not mentioned in discharge summaries. So an outpatient provider likely would not even have known that the results of these tests needed to be followed up. In the patient safety arena, this is what you call a fumbled handoff - and it leads to medical errors. said Martin Were, M.D., MS., first author of the study. Dr. Were is a Regenstrief Institute investigator and an assistant professor of medicine at the IU School of Medicine.. While it is easy to blame busy health-care providers for poor quality of discharge summaries, the problem largely reflects a failure in the system, according to Dr. Were. Similarly, in its seminal report To Err is Human, the Institute of Medicine advocates for changes in ...
We found relatively poor agreement between traditional trigger tool and EDW based screening with only approximately a third of all AEs detected by both methods. Our results were consistent across designations of preventability and severity of AEs. Prior studies similarly revealed poor agreement between computerised and trigger tool based strategies to detect AEs. In a study focusing on ADEs, Jha and colleagues reported that a computer based method detected 45% of events, trigger tool based screening detected 65% and only 12% were detected by both methods.14 More recently, Tinoco and colleagues reported that a computerised surveillance system detected more hospital acquired infections than trigger tool based screening, but a similar number of ADEs.19 Importantly, the study found that only 26% of hospital acquired infections and 3% of ADEs were detected by both methods.19 Our study provides additional support that computer facilitated screening may complement the traditional trigger tool approach ...

Nightmare stories of nurses giving potent drugs meant for one patient to another and surgeons removing the wrong body parts have dominated recent headlines about medical care. Lest you assume those cases are the exceptions, a new study by patient safety researchers provides some context.. Their analysis, published in the BMJ on Tuesday, shows that medical errors in hospitals and other health care facilities are incredibly common and may now be the third leading cause of death in the United States - claiming 251,000 lives every year, more than respiratory disease, accidents, stroke and Alzheimers.. ...

Serious medical errors don t just affect the health of the patient, they can quickly destroy the patient s relationship with his or her doctor, too, experts say
Research shows that medical errors may cause 250,000 deaths in the United States every year. Here are some errors that had lasting effects.
Our study has a number of strengths: the large, representative sample drawn from Trusts in different regions and of different size and teaching status; our use of problem in care rather than the commonly used adverse event to minimise the risk of overlooking errors of omission; and the various measures to standardise data collection and ensure high quality record review.. Nonetheless, several limitations need to be considered. First, medical records may not document all problems in care, though this limitation applies to all RCRR studies, including ones that have generated previous estimates of preventable hospital deaths. Second, the estimates of life expectancy were dependent on reviewers judgement, a notoriously difficult task. Third, RCRR studies are often criticised because of the poor reliability of the reviewers judgements. We used a number of approaches to improve reliability and obtained a moderately strong inter-rater agreement that compared favourably with previous studies. Some ...

Patient safety is a discipline that emphasizes safety in health care through the prevention, reduction, reporting, and analysis of medical error that often leads to adverse effects. The frequency and magnitude of avoidable adverse events experienced by patients was not well known until the 1990s, when multiple countries reported staggering numbers of patients harmed and killed by medical errors. Recognizing that healthcare errors impact 1 in every 10 patients around the world, the World Health Organization calls patient safety an endemic concern. Indeed, patient safety has emerged as a distinct healthcare discipline supported by an immature yet developing scientific framework. There is a significant transdisciplinary body of theoretical and research literature that informs the science of patient safety. The resulting patient safety knowledge continually informs improvement efforts such as: applying lessons learned from business and industry, adopting innovative technologies, educating providers ...

Wrong-site procedures result in significant patient harm, and prior studies have shown that-contrary to traditional assumptions-many of these errors occur outside the operating room. This analysis of 14 cases of wrong-site thoracenteses, a procedure to remove fluid from around the lung, identified several common themes in these errors. The majority of errors resulted in serious patient injury.

For the second consecutive year, diagnostic error and managing test results were ranked number 1 among the Top 10 Patient Safety Concerns for 2019 identified by the ECRI Institute.. Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the country, said Marcus Schabacker, MD, president and CEO, ECRI Institute. This guidance can help healthcare leaders and clinicians save lives.Healthcare providers rely on EHRs to help with clinical decision support and tracking test results. But that technology is just one tool in the diagnostic process, said William Marella, executive director of operations and analytics, at the ECRI Institute PSO.. We have to recognize the limits of current technology and ensure that we have processes in place to close the loop on diagnostic tests, Marella said.

Dentists are medical practitioners who are also obligated to provide an acceptable standard of care to their patients. Medical mistakes at the dentists office can kill patients or leave them with permanent injuries. For instance, there is currently a case in Houston where a dentist is accused of causing severe brain damage to a 4-year-old girl. The dentist allegedly failed to monitor the girl during a procedure and gave her too many sedatives. As a result, the girl can no longer speak, walk, eat or see. There are other types of medical mistakes that may occur at a dentists office. Examples of medical malpractice at the dentists office might include: Anesthesia mistakes: Some dental procedures require patients to undergo general anesthesia. Mistakes made during general anesthesia could lead to traumatic brain injuries or death. Patients may also not receive enough anesthesia, which could lead to anesthesia awareness. This is where ...

There is an epidemic that is killing almost half-a-million Americas and injuring millions of others every year. This epidemic is as bad as the top two killers of Americans, cancer and heart disease (each claiming over 550,000 lives each year), and is far worse than accidents (claiming over 120,000 lives each year). What makes this epidemic more tragic than the most common causes of death in the U.S. is that these deaths are 100% preventable.. Preventable medical errors kill and injure Americans at an alarming rate. A new study printed in the Journal of Patient Safety, as reported by Scientific American, reports that the true number of premature deaths associated with preventable harm to patients was estimated at more than 400,000 per year. Serious harm seems to be 10- to 20-fold more common than lethal harm. This is a problem of epidemic proportions that must be fixed..

The patient safety movement currently focuses on errors for which there are available solutions,23, 24 such as automated prescription entry,25, 26 and on other errors that are assumed to be most common or harmful. There is, however, limited epidemiologic research with which to determine the latter. High-quality, generalizable data are lacking,27 and the definition of error itself is argued.28, 29. Most efforts to quantify errors focus on downstream events, predominantly errors in diagnosis and treatment. Such mistakes, viewed in isolation from their causal origins, appear as clinical misjudgments30, 31 and inspire interventions designed around skill building,32, 33 yet the underlying issue may not be misjudgment but the quality of the data on which the judgments are based. The policy importance of overlooking proximal causes is great, because physicians, health care systems, and policy makers, operating from inadequate evidence and the misperceptions it creates may be inattentive to the errors ...

Proponents of EMRs say they make it easier for doctors to communicate with patients and with one another. The records are also supposed to cut down on medical errors by doing things like providing warnings about medication allergies.. Dr. Cebul acknowledged that his study didnt prove that electronic records directly improved patient care; other factors could explain the difference. Its possible, for instance, that the clinics with paper records simply provided worse care in general -- their decision to not move to electronic records could be a sign that theyre behind the times in other ways.. And clinics often failed to fully follow guidelines about care for people with diabetes even when they used electronic records.. ...
