Today’s surgical settings are focused on patient safety and rich in standards, protocols and policies aimed at preventing medical errors. However, there is always a risk of potentially life-threatening human error. Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine conducted an analysis of surgical adverse events that occurred over a 6-month period. The results, published in JAMA Network Open, were eye-opening and will assist in strategy development to reduce the risk of human performance deficiencies.
