In UK errors are more common in elderly care, Accidents and Emergency (you guys call CR), intensive care and acute medicine. Medication errors are very common and we had 32 action plan and reduced them by 70%. We focused on pressure ulcers, hospital acquired infections, missed medication, falls reduction, and fracture neck of femur outcome and nutrition and fluid in elderly and reduced all these errors by around 80 to 90%. Last two years no more missed fractures in ER!

I have the idea that HCPs, particularly physicians, are more like to be exposed to errors in medicine when they are patients.
Is there any truth to this and, also are there other groups of patients that are more likely to be involved in errors when patients?
