Words to live by after making a medication error

  1. It's discouraging to make a mistake, but it's humiliating when you find out you're so unimportant that nobody noticed it. -- Chuck Daly
  2. So then, if you get caught, be relieved. You are the father  important.
  3. But if you caught yourself making a mistake, that is even better. The sooner you realize, the better.
  4. And if the patient did not have injury as a result of your error, that is the best.
  5. Nevertheless, we should all learn from our mistakes. 
  6. Norepinephrine is not NEOsynephrine. Duh.

I would love to read your comments.
