BP alarms failed because... dum da dum... someone didn't want to be woken up by false alarms. link

This resonates with two themes of my thoughts over the last few years:

- Type II errors matter too, and

- If your system pays more attention to what people should do than what they actually do, then you are a jerk, or misguided, or maybe just an idiot. Which of these I infer depends heavily on my mood.

To be fair, most systems pay more attention to what people should do than what they actually do. Like, say, US drug policy. Or Maoism. Or abstinence-only education (for that matter, all of junior high school).
