Unfortunately, health care providers, in spite of their best intentions, may cause harm to their patients with their attempts to manage a medical emergency. The severity of their failed attempts can range from a mild inconvenience to a fatality for the patient. The purpose of this presentation is to learn from the mistakes of others. This presentation is based on the experiences the presenter and his paramedic colleagues have had responding to emergencies at medical facilities.
