Feedback for Implementation of Continuous Quality Assurance for Medication Safety

Pharmacist  ·  April 3, 2017

A lot of thought needs to be put into this. What constitutes an error? There are mixups that happen behind the counter in a retail pharmacy that are then caught and never reach the patient. What types of errors must be reported? Will there be a 'severity scale'? Sometimes a patient will call and say "just fill all my meds" without being specific. Most are filled, one is missed. Is that an error? I can uderstand the intent of this - and I agree that error reporting can be helpful, but the committee setting this up will have to be very specific about what needs to be reported and what doesn't.
