Near misses and unsafe conditions reported in a Pediatric Emergency Research Network.

Ruddy RM, Chamberlain JM, Mahajan PV, Funai T, O'Connell KJ, Blumberg S, Lichenstein R, Gramse HL, Shaw KN, Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Netwo - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Handoff issues were important in 11.5%.Human factors issues were highly reported and non-compliance with established procedures was very common, and calculation issues, communications (ie, handoffs) and clinical judgment were also important.This work should enable us to help improve systems within the environment of the ED to enhance patient safety in the future.
