Pediatricians making mistakes

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- A new study finds just over half of pediatricians admit to making medical errors at least once a month.

The anonymous survey of 726 doctors also found that just under half admit to making a mistake that harms a patient at least once a year.

The most common errors were diagnosing a virus as a bacterial infection and not recognizing the side effects of a medication.
