Carol Haraden, a patient safety expert at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, and one of the leaders of the course, gave a great example of an old patient who was abusive and erratic in the post-operative period following a surgical procedure. The nursing staff thought he needed psychiatric help and in the middle of the night when a nurse suggested to the doctor that the patient likely needed an antipsychotic, the doctor agreed. When the patient died, an autopsy revealed a pulmonary embolism.

This patient was known to be at high risk of thromboembolism but there had been no risk assessment and no SBAR communication (Situation, Background, Assessment and Recommendation) between the nurse and the doctor. And it's not surprising that at 3 am the doctor did not question the nurse's judgment. Carol used this example to highlight the importance of building communication and teamwork at par with clinical skills to create a safe environment in healthcare.
