Feedback for Implementation of Continuous Quality Assurance for Medication Safety

Pharmacist  ·  April 1, 2017

Most times errors are due to rush rush rush. Patients do not want to wait longer. Although mandetory reporting is a good idea it is retrospective. It wont stop that particular error. As a pharmacist working in community pharmacy, my say is that there should be AVERAGE limit on number of scripts being checked by pharmacist. Like some US states have, if pharmacy is doing more than 150 scripts in a day (12 hours), pharmacy owner should add additional pharmacist. Its like per prescrption and per patient....how many minutes can a pharmacist spare on average? Too less is a chance of error. Thank you.
