Feedback for Implementation of Continuous Quality Assurance for Medication Safety

Pharmacist  ·  April 12, 2017

Handwritten prescriptions can lead to errors.Rechecking with MD office is time consuming and delays patient care. Thoroughness should not be compromised for speed,as each prescription requires some amount of therapeutic analysis by the pharmacist.In very busy pharmacies the pharmacist is under tremendous pressure to churn out prescriptions super fast, speed in filling prescriptions is dangerous just like speeding in traffic, unfortunately unlike in traffic there is nobody to monitor if someone is going too fast, on the other hand, the pressure is do even faster. Maybe there should be some kind of reportable time frame established for filling different kind of prescriptions as a quality control measure.
