Description

Medication errors are the most common type of medical errors in healthcare. Adverse drug events (ADEs) account for 30% of all hospital-acquired conditions, most of which were preventable. An IOM report estimated that a hospital patient is subject to one medication error per day. The HHS national action plan for ADE prevention found that ADEs prolong length of stay from 1.7 days to 4.6 days.

TJC and CMS take medication management seriously, dedicating serious resources to improve this area of healthcare through education and regulations.

During this program, our expert will review evidence-based literature that demonstrate more than 60 tips that hospitals and other healthcare facilities can use to reduce medication errors and improve patient safety.
