    Hospital Poka Yoke

    Hospital Lean: Error Proofing by Mark Graban

    Some hospitals are making a systemic process change that they hope will prevent this error. They are banning the typical abbreviation for micrograms. They want everyone to use "mcg" for micrograms and "mg" for milligrams.

    Much better than telling everyone to "be careful."


    Nice poka yoke example.
