Cover image for lecture: What is 'Missed Care'?

Lecture Overview

What is missed nursing care? Is patient refusal counted as missed care? What about errors? An error of omission occurs when specified care is not provided. This differs from an error of commission where the wrong practice is carried out. In this introductory session, get clear on all these definitions and why knowing their difference is important.
