The Urgent Need to Reduce Medication Errors in Hospitals to Prevent Patient and Second Victim Harm
Medication errors are the most common adverse event in hospitals, not only in terms of number, but as well in morbidity and mortality and have significant economic and health consequences. Adverse events related to an erroneous use of medication cause greater mortality than traffic accidents, breast cancer or the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). In addition, healthcare staff directly or indirectly involved in an adverse event, the ‘second victims’, may also suffer from emotional harm.
