Once, before starting as a dev, I worked at a company, was sick, had a headache and I miscalculated in a spreadsheet required mass of a component for a project, instead of 800 kilograms I ended up with 8 tons of a certain material. Merely one order of magnitude. We managed to find that error, only because suppliers were returning weird offers.

So from then on, if I am sick, then I would only agree to do intellectual work only if there were people who would double check it and take full responsibility for it.
