WEB RESOURCES on “Human Factors and Ergonomics”
- From www.madison.com, the online archive for the Wisconsin State Journal and The Capital Times, a series of articles outlining a case study wherein human error with respect to a medical device led to fatal results, and how this might have been prevented from a design perspective. The first article presents the errors made and the ensuing consequences for both patient and nurse. The second article details the legal ramifications of the case, and the third article discusses the common medical mistake that led to this tragedy and how a simple design change in IV connections could make this situation obsolete.
The video provided by Professor David Beebe of the University of Wisconsin – Madison addresses design considerations for the developing world.
