I was halfway through this article on alarm fatigue and misdiagnosis, before I realized it was about cyber attacks on complex computer systems and not about doctors and nurses caring for patients in a hospital system. Since I'm not a doctor or a nurse, I need to ask those of you who are, is this a relevant description of hospitalists' and ED staff's experience with alarm fatigue and the resulting risk of misdiagnosis from ignoring a trigger event?

Best,
Helene
