Everyone makes mistakes; it’s a fact of life. However, the costs of those mistakes are never the same. This is why in important fields such as medicine there are stringent laws, policies and internal guidelines to minimize mistakes. Still, mistakes continue to be made or happen because the rules were not followed.
