  • Overview

    The prevention of medical errors remains a unified goal of healthcare organizations. There needs to be a shift from a culture of blame concerning medical errors to that of an analytical approach of investigating the potential causes. By understanding the root causes behind errors, the medical community can decrease the likelihood of them occurring in the future.
