Most of us have been there before. In an attempt to get that last item completed before the end of another long day on the job in the field of clinical research we inadvertently scribe the wrong date on the research record we are completing. We are all human after all, and mistakes do happen from time to time. Sometimes we know instantly and can correct ourselves, and others someone else points out the discrepancy that we may have over looked. It’s how we respond after we are made aware that we have made the mistake that I want to focus on for this blog post because there are multiple different options one can take.
