connection error

Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Legal, Encyclopedia.

connection error

The linking of incompatible devices, drug delivery systems, or power sources with one another. It is a potential cause of patient injury.

Patient care

Systems approaches to equipment engineering in which devices used for different purposes are made physically incompatible with each other (as by designing links between structures so that physiologically incompatible tubes cannot be fastened to each other) can prevent connection errors. Careful labeling of devices and drug delivery systems by nurses, with cross-checking of labels by staff, may also be helpful.
