    We learn about the medical errors and it’s consequence, but not a lot of teaching is done on the legality section of it (such as building cases).

    It’s more of:

    Know the errors -> Know who to contact/inform -> Suffer the consequence

    Honestly, “pointing the blame” is a common thing that happens inside the hospital. That’s why you always have to take care of yourself, document everything, and always protect yourself.
