My classmates and I are doing a project on the impact on healthcare workers, more specifically nurses, who have made a mistake and have suffered the consequences from that mistake. For example, nurse Kimberly Hiatt accidentally overdosed an 8-month-old with calcium chloride and eventually committed suicide as a result. The nurse in this case was the second victim of the med error.
Have you made a mistake in your practice that compromised patient safety and affected you emotionally? How did you feel? Did you receive any emotional support from your institution? It will help shed some light on this issue.
Thanks in advance
