Readers of this summary in “This week in the BMJ” (31 January) relating to the paper “Clinical risk management in obstetrics: eclampsia drills” by Sarah Thompson and colleagues (pp 269-71) may have been misled by the word “evacuate,” which inexplicably appeared in the second sentence. Thompson and colleagues reported on a fire drill programme, using on-site simulation, to identify deficiencies in the management of [not “to evacuate”] patients with eclampsia.
