Medication reconciliation prevents medication related harm at patient hospitalisation. This cross‐sectional study demonstrated that the Hunter New England Health Admission Medication History Form that supports the two processes is underutilised in two hospitals in New South Wales with many doctors unaware of the form and pharmacists facing understaffing and time constraints for completing it. Triaging of patients and, more collaboration between doctors and pharmacists are required for efficient in‐hospital medication reconciliation.
