One way to learn from errors is to establish a reporting system. Reporting systems have the potential to serve two important functions. They can hold providers accountable for performance or, alternatively, they can provide information that leads to improved safety. Conceptually, these purposes are not incompatible, but in reality, they can prove difficult to satisfy simultaneously.Reporting systems whose primary purpose is to hold providers accountable are "mandatory reporting systems." Reporting focuses on errors associated with serious injuries or death. Most mandatory reporting systems are operated by state regulatory programs that have the authority to investigate specific cases and issue pena

Developed westerncountries do therefore seem to have‘‘bought into’’ the message that medicalerror reporting systems are a very ‘‘goodthing’’—although there is little evidencethat Johnson’s4pragmatic cautions havebeen well considered in setting themup.The reporting of ‘‘medical errors’’—whatever they are—is still an embryonicendeavor and, before national andinternational medical error reportingsystems get well under way, somecrucial topics—such as defining whatwe are to report to error reportingsystems—should be addressed withclarity. An occasional error reportingsystem has dealt with ambiguity overwhat needs to be reported by adopting alist of explicitly defined events ‘‘thatshould never happen’’,5but most are farless precise. Hopefully, the nationalmedical error reporting systems of dif-ferent countries will ultimately (if notinitially) use the same definitions. Weraise some issues here that expose thecomplexity of defining ‘‘medical error’’and demonstrate just how peculiar,
