Our reference is an article titled “Six Things We Can Do About Medical Device User Errors” by Conrad Stolze. This article is more than a couple of years old, but I promise the BMET/User struggle is still alive and well across the medical world.

However, it is more common for the user to incorrectly operate and configure the equipment causing unexpected operation or harm to a patient. (Stolze, 2007)

After reading the article, post your thoughts covering one or some of the following areas. 

  • Do you have any experience using the Root Cause Analysis (RCA) methodology to identify the actual causes of a problem?

  • If you were called to a medical ward to perform an Incident Investigation, what are some questions you might ask the user(s)?
