Finding the appropriate balance between assigning criminality and accountability for tragic preventable patient harm is difficult. Summarizing a high-profile case in the United Kingdom that involved the death of a pediatric patient, misdiagnosis, and a senior pediatric trainee, this report explores elements of the criminality and accountability debate across the system and discusses policy, judicial, and individual components of a fair and just response to adverse events to keep organizations, clinicians, and patients safe.
