This dataset contains the raw discrepancy data from the post-hoc human reliability analysis performed for this paper. Video recordings of paediatric nurses preparing intravenous medicines during a resuscitation simulation (from a previous study) were re-analysed using human reliability analysis to identify discrepancies in the steps required to find and extract information from the NHS Injectable Medicines Guide (IMG) website. These data were combined with MAE data from the same original study. The dataset includes some medication error data from the previous study (dose and rate deviations, error severity score, clinically significant and large magnitude errors) and discrepancy data from this study (hierarchical task analysis node number, error mode, deviation contribution to an error, description of discrepancy).
