About Hospital Errors on Medical Tubing Killing Patients

Hundreds of deaths and serious injuries can be attributed to mix-ups with similar looking types of medical tubing. Experts and standards groups have long advocated that tubes for different purposes be made so that they are incompatible with each other-just as different nozzles at gas stations prevent drivers from using the wrong fuel.


As the New York Times reported, a otherwise healthy young woman and her unborn daughter died after a feeding tube was mistakenly connected to an intravenous line, sending liquid food directly into her veins - a fatal, and completely avoidable, mistake.


In cases like these, it’s difficult to say where the fault lies, but the very design of medical tubing deserves at least partially responsible. Researchers have traced hundreds of such deaths or serious injuries to tube mix-ups. However, no one knows real toll, because this kind of mistake, like medication errors in general, is rarely reported. An earlier survey of hospitals found that 16 percent had experienced a feeding tube mix-up.


Medical tubing serves a variety of unique purposes in hospitals, for instance delivering medication, fluids, food, gases or blood to different areas of the body - the veins, arteries, stomach, lungs, etc.


Unfortunately, many varieties of medical tubing are interchangeable and easily connectable, meaning it is very simple to mistakenly connect a feeding tube to an intravenous line, or IV fluids to an oxygen tube, leading to suffocation.


The New York Times also reported a case where a spinal anesthetic used for pain relief during childbirth was mistakenly put into a vein, killing the 16-year-old recipient. With nurses often working overtime or covering too many patients at once, it is all too easy to connect a tube improperly, leading to an often fatal outcome for the patient.


A simple solution would be to change the design of the tubes so tubing for different functions are no longer compatible with one another.
