Being accountable for errors and working to learn from them is key to improving patient safety. This commentary describes a physician's reactions following a medication ordering error that resulted in temporary patient harm, steps taken to report the error, how the incident was used as a teaching point for team members, and the patient's positive response to the physician's disclosure and apology.
