Cor­rec­tion

The New Zealand Herald - - News -

A head­line in Tues­day’s Herald, “GP apol­o­gises for fa­tal er­ror” was in­cor­rect. The med­i­ca­tion pre­scribed by the doc­tor was never linked di­rectly to the pa­tient’s death. The GP ad­mit­ted he made er­rors in not doc­u­ment­ing the pa­tient’s re­nal sta­tus and did not check the pa­tient’s suit­abil­ity against the drug’s prod­uct safety sheet.
