I almost killed my patient.

In the days after my scary event I spent hours and hours thinking through what I had done.  

I knew my ABCs, I had prioritized everything I was supposed to, how could things have gone so horribly wrong…

And I realized that I had overlooked a very important part of my ABCs.  

It wasn’t the A - airway, the B - breathing, or the C - circulation 

What was left, what did I miss?

What I violated was Safety

  2. Don't be complacent about the s for Safety

  3. Ask for help as soon as possible
