Humans will always make mistakes regardless of their training, experience, or determination.  In other words, the universal constant is that human infallibility is impossible, and those who build a system that depends on the absence of serious human mistakes will fail utterly.

We must expect literally every medical order to contain a potentially lethal mistake.
