Abstract

Medication errors are a great concern to health care organisations as they are costly and pose a significant risk to patients. Medication errors to be prescribing, preparation and dispensing, administration or monitoring are key patient safety concerns and a quality measure of healthcare medication process management. When they occur, medication errors produce a variety of problems for patients, ranging from minor discomfort to substantial morbidity that may lead to increased length of hospital stay or death under certain circumstances. The paediatric and neonatal patient population are three times more likely to be affected by medication errors than adults and significantly higher error rates have been reported during prescribing and administration in comparison to dispensing and monitoring.
