Medical Errors

According to Sollecito& Johnson 2013, “Organizations do not suddenly
start making mistakes. They tend to slide imperceptibly into a set of
conditions that produce medical errors” p. 327. After completing this
week’s reading discuss this concept as it relates to quality patient
outcomes. Answer the following questions:

a. In your opinion, do you believe that errors in the hospital setting are
inevitable? Why or why not?
b. If the most frequent type of error is omitting a step in delivering care
Sollecito& Johnson, 2013, p. 312, would it be better to focus on the
individual who omitted the step or the system in which they work?
Explain your answer.
c. What role could being a “learning organization” play in reducing
errors?
Your initial post should be 250-300 words and utilize a minimum of two
scholarly sources, cited in APA format.
