As part of ongoing efforts to improve transfusion safety, an error reporting system was implemented in our hospital-based transfusion medicine unit at a tertiary care medical institute. This system is based on Medical Event Reporting System-Transfusion Medicine (MERS-TM) and collects data on all near miss, no harm, and misadventures related to the transfusion process. Root cause analyses of one such innocuous appearing error demonstrate how weaknesses in the system can be identified to make necessary changes to achieve transfusion safety.
