Medical errors can occur in any health care setting: hospitals, physician offices, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities. They can range from no risk/harm to a patient to a medical error that causes the death of a patient. Most often, when thinking about medical errors, health care professionals generally refer to wrong-site surgeries, medication errors and falls.
