When it comes to medical mistakes, understanding how and why they happen is critical to preventing them. Each year, the Minnesota Department of Health releases a report addressing medical errors across the state. The incidence of these errors has trended slightly upward since 2014.

Nurses serve as tireless advocates for their patients, and they're a vital link in keeping paths of communication clear.
