Common Types of Nursing Errors
According to research, nurses are interrupted in their work an average of six times per hour, with many hospitals forcing nurses to work overtime to compensate for insufficient staffing. Nurses are three times more likely to make an error after working for more than 12.5 hours, with roughly one-third of all registered nurses reporting that they were aware of having made at least one mistake over the past month. Nursing errors can occur not only in hospitals and medical clinics, but also in nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
Commonly occurring nursing errors include:
- Ignoring critical warning alarms
- Administering improper doses of medication
- Failing to communicate with doctors
- Improperly using medical devices
- Performing medical procedures on the wrong patient
- Leaving surgical items inside a patient
- Hospital-acquired infections caused by unclean practices
- Birth injuries caused by errors in delivery
