Beginning with the first night of Hanukkah and continuing until the end of the holiday we add Al Hanisim to all of our amidot and Birkat Hamazon. A person who forgot to say "Al Hanisim" in its proper place in the amida but remembered before saying "Baruch ata HaShem" to end off Modim goes back and says "Modim anahnu lach, Al Hanisim etc." and continues from there. Once he says the words "Baruch ata HaShem" however, he does not go back to Al Hanisim. Instead, it Al Hanisim is said at the end of Elokai Netzor. There also he says "Modim anahnu lach Al Hanisim.." A person who accidentally said the insert for Purim instead of Hanukkah has nevertheless fulfilled his obligation and does not go back.
