A typical patient could be connected, via tubes or catheters, to several delivery systems to receive medication, nutrients, and fluids. Tubing misconnections—also called Luer misconnections, small-bore misconnections, or wrong route errors—refer to what happens when a tube from the medical device for one delivery system is connected to a system that serves a completely different function—for example, a feeding administration set being connected to a tracheostomy tube. Such errors have resulted in patient injury and deaths, and they are widely recognized as underreported. Misconnections are attributed to the universal design of Luer connectors, which are one of the most commonly used types of small-bore connectors in healthcare. The connectors are parts used to connect the tubing of one medical device to another. However, the simple design and ease of use of the Luer connector allows the tube of the device for one delivery system to be connected to an unrelated system that has a different intended use.
