You may remember “ER,” the long-running medical soap opera. That show owed much of its popularity to the many dramatic scenes that showed emergency room staff swiftly and heroically trying to save lives.
You can get a taste of that excitement in this podcast. Nancy Stuck, legal nurse consultant, former “helicopter nurse” who rode with injured people, and is now a busy emergency department nurse.
She vividly describes the countless things that can go wrong at an accident scene, including the onlookers who can create even more accidents. From there, she takes us to the ER, where medical personnel do their best to save the lives of multiple accident victims. Here, errors often occur.
Nancy breaks down the many possible errors. Speed of treatment, the correct code designation, correct documentation and that most important function, correct treatment, can lead to deviations from the standard of care.
Her ability to portray the hectic nature of the ER environment provides a background in which you can visualize how errors can happen. You will not soon forget her dramatic account.
