Medication Administration Errors and Adverse Drug Events.
In 2012 Brigham & Women’s Hospital conducted a research study to determine how often medication administration errors with the potential to cause harm to result in actual patient harm.
Out of 14,041 medication administrations, researchers reported 1271 (8.9%) errors.
Of these medication errors, 133 (10.5%) were considered potential serious or life-threatening potential ADEs. Of these potential ADE’s 10 (7.5%) were found to cause serious patient harm.
A 600-bed tertiary hospital administering 1,182,600 medications per year typically experiences 829 harmful ADE’s per annum.
“How do we improve medication safety at the bedside?”
Can we check all medication types?
Can we stop workarounds?
We can optically scan and check all medications at the bedside with or without barcodes.
