Help your patients avoid medication errors

Medication errors come in all shapes and sizes, from overdoses to misunderstanding doses to drug name mix-ups to patients receiving the wrong medication or using the wrong dosage units. In fact, since 2000, FDA has received more than 95,000 voluntary reports of medication errors. Even though there are systems in place to prevent medication errors, it often comes down to the pharmacist to keep patients safe and make sure they are getting the right medications at the right dose.
