Follow the Mantra, "When in Doubt, Fill the Error Report Out"
Pharmacists will be more encouraged to report medication errors...in an effort to improve patient safety and outcomes.
Sometimes there's hesitation to report errors...due to concerns about liability or disciplinary action or confusion about what to report.
But we're human...and we all make mistakes. We can't fix what we don't know. Reporting errors is a first step in preventing repeats.
