SUTIL P, Luza. Handling errors in medicine. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2001, vol.129, n.12, pp.1470-1472. ISSN 0034-9887.

If negligent actions are ruled out, medical errors must be prevented or attenuated enhancing security in all the health care system. Prudent and confidential information and assessment are crucial to obtain good results, discarding to look for whom to blame and assuming collectively the supervision of suspected conditions. Massive introduction of technology, intervention of multiple agents in the care of patients and the number of alternatives offered to manage health problems, contribute to increase medical errors. Not of lesser importance are the increasing expectations of patients on health benefits, that must be synchronized to the continuous improvement in medical care (Rev Méd Chile 2001; 129: 1470-2)
