Recovering and reporting medical errors in the emergency department

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The Research to Practice column attempts to serve 2 purposes: (1) fine-tune the research critique skills of advanced practice nurses and (2) suggest strategies to translate findings from a research study into bedside practice. For each column, a topic and a particular research study are selected. The stage is set by introducing the importance of the topic. The research article is then reviewed and critiqued, and finally, the implications for translation into practice are discussed. In this column, the following article has been reviewed: Henneman, Blank, Gawlinski, and Henneman (2006). Qualitative methods were used to conduct 4 focus groups with emergency department nurses to understand how nurses recover medical errors. © 2008 Wolters Kluwer Health Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
