Overview

This pocket book succinctly describes 250 errors commonly made by physicians caring for children in all clinical settings and gives practical, easy-to-remember tips for avoiding these errors. Easy to read during a short rotation, the book identifies all the key pitfalls in data gathering, interpretation, and clinical decision making.

Each error is described in a short, clinically relevant vignette, followed by a list of things that should always or never be done in that context and tips on how to avoid or ameliorate problems.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia M. Granier, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This excellent reference offers easily accessible, practical information on common clinical problems in pediatrics.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a guide to patient safety and help caregivers avoid common mistakes.
Audience: The target audience includes anyone involved in pediatric care including physicians, nurses, and allied health personnel. It is a great resource for all caregivers, from medical students to seasoned pediatricians.
Features: This book covers some basic dos and don'ts in pediatrics. The 250 potential errors are organized by category and discussed by a variety of contributors. The book is an excellent sampling of common problems, common mistakes, and great ways to easily access pertinent information. However, it is not comprehensive and should not be considered a complete reference on any pediatric subject.
Assessment: This is an excellent addition to any medical library and would be useful to all caregivers regardless of their years of experience.
