What is the mistake?

Infant, s/p Repair of AVSD (Postop. day 8)
Postoperative Heart Block
Temporary pacemaker setting: DDD @ 90 bpm.
What is the mistake made by the nurse? (or the resident, or the fellow...attending would not have done it!!)

Pacing in inappropriate. Appears to be a spike followed by QRS, then spike followed by p wave.

That's correct. The atrial and ventricular leads were plugged in the wrong outlet in the temporary pacemaker!
