Failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA) is a widely used tool for identifying latent safety hazards. Traditional FMEA relies on brainstorming among team members to detect failure modes (the ways in which a clinical process might fail). This study found that direct observation of a simulated clinical process improved the FMEA by facilitating identification of different types and a greater number of failure modes.

Although simulation training heightens the learning experience, the potential for artificial medication labels, liquid, and equipment to be incorporated into active inventory is a potential hazard. The authors, directors of the Foundation for Healthcare Simulation Safety, call for heightened attention to this emerging problem. They recommend use of failure mode and effect analysis, labeling materials specifically for educational use, and controlling access to training materials as strategies to reduce the potential for simulation-related equipment hazards.
