    Findings: Most of these risk controls – 35 out of 42 – would be classified as ‘administrative’ by the HoC, and thus considered weak. The risk controls that fell into this ‘administrative’ category included training, standardising processes and procedures, and changing the design and organisation of care. Since other evidence shows these approaches can sometimes be very successful in healthcare, it is probably a mistake to automatically assume they are weak. Completely eliminating reliance on human behaviour is very difficult in the healthcare context and would introduc

    Shared with hub by Dr Abigail Clark-Morgan: Images shared of our stocked noradrenaline ampules and tranexamic acid – these have been mixed up and we are looking to stock alternative volumes of noradrenaline to reduce the likelihood of confusion. The incident also highlighted the importance of checking all the ampules drawn up, drawing up your own medications at the point of administration and effective second checking.

In this provocative true story of tragedy, the authors recount the journey travelled and what was learned by, at the time, Canada’s largest fully integrated health region. They weave this story together with the theory about why things fall apart and how to put t

    A French study of adverse drug reactions has a highlighted a link between drug shortages and medication error. Data from the French Pharmacovigilance Database show that medication errors were identified in 11% of the 462 cases mentioning a drug shortage. The researchers found that medication errors usually occurred at the administration step and involved a human factor. “A drug shortage may lead to a replacement of the unavailable product by an alternative,” the researchers wrote. “However, this alternative may have different packaging, labelling, dosage and sometimes a differen
