About 'Lesson of the Month' 2012

The aim of this section is to highlight mistakes that we have all seen on a day-to-day basis in hospital practice. The cases described are based on clinical cases that we have encountered - they are not case reports and some elements of case have been deliberately changed to protect patient anonimity, but also to draw out the points we are trying to emphasize

By illustrating errors that we have seen in these case scenarios we hope to encourge principles of good practice to improve care and most importantly patient safety

The format for these 'lessons' will be a short case, followed by a discussion that highlights mistakes, and suggestions of how care might have been improved
