A “truvel” is a book that uses fictional names and places but is based on true stories of nurses in the health-care environment. To Err Is Common is told through the perspective of one young nurse who is evaluating patient errors within the framework of system requirements and the role of nursing. For those who are not within the health system, it may explain how things can and do go wrong; for those currently working as nurses, it may describe their professional life and frustrations.
