Mistakes Do Happen
As scary as it sounds, it’s natural for nurses to make mistakes sometimes. After all, nurses are human too and they’re not always as well-rested as they should be, especially if they’ve been working long hours or during the night. Having said that, patients will never find out if someone almost goofs up thanks to safety processes that are in place to avoid such situations.
Known as a “near-miss” in the world of risk management, all nurses strive to learn from these one-off episodes and make sure it never happens again. Believe us when we say that it bothers them more than anyone else!
