Abstract:Over the years, the Institute for Safe Medication Practices has gained a great deal of insight into the medication-use system through reports of medication errors and by performing on-site analyses at various health care organizations. Part 2 reviews the key elements of the medication-use process, contributing factors that lead to medication errors, and recommendations for consultant pharmacists that will assist long-term care facilities in preventing medication errors.
