Misadventures in Health Care: Inside Stories presents an alternative approach to attributing the cause of medical error solely to the health care provider. That alternative, the systems approach, pursues why an incident occurs in terms of factors in the context of care that affect the care provider to induce an error. The basis for this approach is the fact that an error is an act, an act is behavior, and behavior is a function of the person interacting with the environment. Eleven vignettes illustrate the importance of the systems approach by describing health care incidents from the perspective of the care providers--the perspective that can identify the factors that actually affect the provider. These stories provide general readers with opportunities to apply their knowledge in analyzing incidents to identify error-inducing factors.

This book is important reading for policymakers, researchers and practitioners in law and in all medical specialties, and professionals in the social sciences, human factors, and engineering. In addition to sensitizing the reader to the importance of contextual factors in error, Misadventures in Health Care is a case study reference to supplement texts in professional schools such as law and medicine, as well as the full range of academic disciplines. It also is important reading for the general public because it presents an approach for addressing a very pressing social problem-- that of misadventures in health care.

Review:

This wonderful collection reminds us that improving patient safety is a matter of life and death.
Donna E. Shalala
President, University of Miami, Former Secretary of Health and Human Services

Medical error kills. Common sense says to punish those responsible. Common sense is wrong, as this book so powerfully demonstrates. Each chapter starts with a gripping case history. Each demonstrates that it is the system that is at fault, that the people now being blamed and punished are often victims, not culprits, and that no progress will be made until attitudes--and the entire system--are changed. This important book should be required reading of everyone concerned with medical safety, which means everyone: anyone involved in treatment, anyone who might someday get sick.
Don Norman
Northwestern University, Nielson Norman Group, Author of The Design of Everyd

This book should be widely read not only by researchers and practitioners in all the medical specialties, but also by professionals in the social sciences, human factors, and engineering. Indeed, it should be read by lay persons as well because it contains messages for everyone interested in the integrity of medical care and practice. And who, these days, is not?
Alphonse Chapanis
Professor Emeritus, Johns Hopkins University
