How do you interpret that: over 60% new residents are neutral about or disagree that making errors is inevitable and 75% are neutral or agree that competent physicians do not make medical errors that lead to patient harm? Are their expectations realistic? Have they internalized a lack of tolerance for errors? Do they think that only incompetent physicians make errors? ….Or that errors are not to be talked about? Other interpretations?
How will knowing about these responses influence your teaching and interaction with residents?
Humanize making mistakes: Describe an error you made and what you learned Begins rounds with a Safety Moment
Was the procedure, treatment, or test appropriate and warranted based on nationally recognized standards of care? Was the complication a known risk, was it anticipated, and did the care team plan ahead to take steps to prevent it? Was the complication identified in a timely manner (i.e. at the time of occurrence)? Was the complication treated according to the standard of care and in a timely manner?
