For example, you can observe a pharmacist add too much diluent to a lyophilized drug (dry power) due to a mental math error. 3). 2 Cognition errors are cases in which the user does not remember something important or draws the wrong conclusion based on incomplete or flawed knowledge. 3 Action errors are cases when a user performs an incorrect action or does not perform a necessary step. Note that IEC 62366-1:2015 uses the term “use error” in an intentionally narrow manner. It states: By the definition of this standard, a use error occurs at the “action” stage of this interaction cycle.

In the context of a use error, a person has done the wrong thing (an act of omission or commission) regardless of whether the device or circumstances of use induced the error. Introduction 33 Sample use errors include the following: ªª Programs ªª ªª wrong fluid delivery rate. A nurse programs an infusion pump to deliver a fluid at a rate of 100 mL/hour when the ­prescription said 10 mL/hour. This use error (of commission) leads to a drug overdose. Does not agitate drug. A user of a multi-use auto-injector does not agitate a two-part drug contained within the device that is prone to separation between device uses.

3 WHAT IS A CAPA? CAPA stands for corrective and preventive action. In the medical industry, CAPA is a quality assurance mechanism that is closely tied to good manufacturing practices (GMP) and is prescribed by 14 Chapter 2. Our Root Cause Analysis Process multiple international standards as a response to known deviations from quality goals and to adverse events. A CAPA program calls for manufacturers to identify and investigate device quality problems, including harms that occurred as a consequence of actual device use (as opposed to simulated use), and to take appropriate and effective corrective and/or preventive action to prevent a recurrence.
