Balas MC, Scott LD, Rogers AE. Can J Nurs Res. 2006;38:24-41.
Prior research has demonstrated that intensive care unit patients are particularly vulnerable to medical error. This survey of critical care nurses examined the frequency, types, and causes of self-reported errors. Errors were frequent, with more than a quarter of nurses committing at least one error during the 28-day study period, and an even greater proportion reported "near errors" (where the nurse caught herself before the error was committed).
