Focusing on errors is a valuable tool and should be intensified. Research on laboratory errors has improved care and this should continue. Perfection is our goal, but a goal we know is unattainable. 

Areas for improvement include a coherent national or international reporting system. What a shame that errors can remain unknown to the public b/o a lawsuit settlement agreement.

More discussion on this subject is needed.
