Top 10 Medical Laboratory Mistakes and How to Prevent Them From Happening in Your Lab

"Mistakes Happen" is a common phrase in the US but as we all know, some mistakes can be much more serious than others. That's especially true within the context of the clinical laboratory, where even the most minor mistake can directly impact the safety and well-being of a patient. 

In this month's featured blog post, we list the 10 most common mistakes that occur within the lab and also offer practical prevention strategies that any laboratory can implement. We also touch upon the technology and innovation present within advanced laboratory information systems (LIS), and how these LIS systems are helping labs minimize mistakes even as testing volumes continue to go up.
