Disclosure of Medication Errors

Disclosure of Medication Errors


1/17/13 #RNChat via Twitter:

MedicationErrorWe encourage transparency in the Health Care process between patients and providers. Why do we do a poor job of disclosure of medication errors?

[View the story “Disclosure of Medication Errors” on Storify]

Several questions come to mind after tonight’s Tweet Chat:

  • How do we turn reporting of med errors into a non-punitive action?
  • Is anyone familiar with non-punitive processes for reporting?

I would love to hear what processes you have encountered that would ENCOURAGE reporting of medication errors.
