    • Give your rationale for choosing the data.
    • Identify the probable cause, which may include a process failure, human error, cultural biases, policy error, systems error, technology failure, etc., that may have contributed to the sentinel event. Consider the following as applicable to your chosen event as you complete this segment:
      • What human factors were relevant to the outcome?
      • What process errors were relevant to the outcome?
