About this course

This course is designed to provide dental professionals with a clearer understanding of medical errors, the devastating effects that these errors can have on both patients and dental providers, and how to use root cause analysis to identify and prevent common medical errors.

In this course, we've used examples from the state of Florida to illustrate the various concepts surrounding Medical Errors. While Florida serves as a reliable analogue here, each state has their own respective distinctions related to Medical Errors.

I really loved this information. I was hospitalized last year for almost a month and I noticed multiple medical errors (not being hooked up to my IV multiple times, given wrong medication which caused my sodium to be very low, etc.) which lengthened my stay. I can now define those exact errors and better understand what happened to me. I hate that these medical errors are so common and I appreciate how well laid out your breakdown and categorization of them was.
