follow-up to "Making mistakes in the ICU..."

A friend mentioned that it would be beneficial (at least to perfectionists like me) if nurses got together with management once in a while to discuss mistakes that are being made (anonymously, of course) so we could all feel a little better about ourselves when we DO make them.

I doubt this is going to happen, but I am going to email our former supervisor for some perspective. How many of us do make mistakes, what kind, and how often? Am I alone in this? Am I alone in thinking I'm alone? That much I seriously doubt.
