Exploring the experience of nurse practitioners who have committed medical errors: a phenomenological approach.

Delacroix R. Journal of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. 2017;29:403-409.

This qualitative interview study of nurse practitioners who had made errors found that they experience complex reactions, including self-blame, concern for the patient, worries about their professional future, and feelings of failure. These results echo prior work about health care team members as second victims of medical errors.
