Medication Error Detection - Best Practices

Date: 
Wednesday, February 7, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

1 CE for Administrators/Registered Nurses

Medication errors represent a significant concern in our facilities, increasing patient mortality and morbidity as well as increasing health care costs.  Even when medication errors result in no patient harm, patient confidence in the health care system can be jeopardized!

Medication Administration is a complex multistep process that encompasses many complicated tasks.  Despite our best efforts, an error can occur at any step.

How do we create a better system?  A system that significantly minimizes that risk and maximizes our resident’s health and safety? In addition, best practices also minimizes that risk for the facility itself.  Fewer lawsuits and citations.

Join us as we review the basic steps, principles and “checks’ of Medication Administration. We will re-evaluate our current systems as well as our overall Medication Management.  Determining the root cause of every medication error is critical, as well as the factors that contributed to them.
