What is a “Never Event” and Why Should You Know More?

A “Never Event” is a clearly identifiable and measurable, serious, and usually preventable medical error or event. “Never Events” fall into a variety of categories and consists of medical errors such as bedsores, wrong-site surgery, and medication errors. Medical malpractice is defined as negligence by act or omission by a health care provider in which care provided deviates from accepted standards of practice in the medical community and causes injury or death to the patient.
