It Is OK to Make a Mistake!

We have all done it; we made an error! We called a helicopter when it wasn’t needed, called “STEMI,” “STROKE,” or “CODE SEPSIS,” and were wrong…and more than likely got hauled under the carpet for doing so. The research though, says it’s OK! We need to make an error, over triage is good! In the era of time-sensitive emergencies, it’s important to understand that mistakes occur. This presentation will take you through the time sensitive emergencies of stroke, STEMI, sepsis, and trauma, and share with you the evidence based over-triage goals set by the American College of Surgeons, American Heart and Stroke Associations, and several research papers. The reality is, if we are always right then there are patients who we missed! Come join in an engaging learning session that empowers patient advocacy and care-based just culture.
