The good news is JCAHO is finally getting it that keeping utility doors closed and documenting monotonous restraint forms does not make for patient safety. They are starting a pilot program to monitor medication errors, as well as other indicators.
The bad news is, at my small hospital, the nurses do NOT fill out medication errors as they should. Partly from not having the time, partly from the sour feeling of reporting an error on a colleague who was overburdened, partly from there being no harm to the patient, etc.
It's going to be a battle convincing nurses to leave a paper chase.
