Why should we care about medication errors!?
Medication errors are a huge deal in any healthcare settings, in some situations it can lead to a lawsuit that settles with a sum of millions, or sometimes it can be a cause of patient death.
Medication errors are an avoidable event that can be anticipated, and most of the times actively prevented, when everyone is working by the international standards and the "hospital / healthcare organization" is forcing their policies to minimize ME.
For a healthcare worker, ME are to be learned from and our aim is to prevent future occurrences. Learning means identifying the cause and asking the involved individuals about what circumstances that lead to the error to happen. This leads to the preventing stage and measure to be taken to prevent ME in the future.
