Abstract

This article provides findings on the role of the nurse in simulated team-based error disclosures. Triangulation of 3 qualitative data sets revealed that a tension exists for nurses in the error disclosure process as they attempt to balance professional boundaries. Study findings point to multilevel strategies including cultural, structural, and educational approaches to enhancing the key roles that nurses need to play in error disclosure to patients and families.
