Hierarchy Errors Addressed with Medical Simulation

Communication errors are well documented sources of medical errors which, according to some literature sources, may be responsible for as many as 60-70% of reported mistakes. As the research article “Using Simulation to Address Hierarchy-Related Errors in Medical Practice” (Calhoun et al) covered below states , “Hierarchy, the unavoidable authority gradients that exist within and [...]
