    Often times, mistakes are a combination of numerous occurrence that combine to make the perfect storm. I believe that Lewis Blackman’s Story is one such occurrence. However, it was not just the actual mistakes that made this case noteworthy. Mistakes are a human manifestation. As Alexander Pope wrote in “an Essay on Criticism”, to err is human, to forgive is divine. In Lewis’s story, I think an apology, in the great sense, would have gone a long way. Medical errors are now the third leading killer in healthcare according to a Harvard study (Makary & Daniel, 2016). While I would challenge anyone that says mistakes are not human, that they are completely avoidable, I would counter that owning mistakes and learning from them is essential to improvement.

And then they asked what else they could do. It made all of the difference. Transparency in medicine can help heal our medical system. And we all know that needs a lot of help. By being open and honest when the unexpected happen, we can find our mistakes. We can find the deadly system failures and we can act to fix them.” While self-improvement is necessary and important, it can…

  • Analysis Of Carol Tavris And Aronson's Mistakes Were Made

    In the book, Mistakes Were Made (but not by me), Carol Tavris and Elliot Aronson are able to showcase true life accounts of people that have made wrong decisions that were either unacceptable or completely terrible, who justified their actions as if they did nothing wrong. People do this because as humans, it is too complicated for us to admit that we have done something wrong, so instead we like to cover ourselves up with justifications.
