Focus on Error Prevention – Drug Allergies

Pharmacy technician on computer

Pharmacy computer systems play a key role in identifying potential drug related problems, such as dispensing of an incorrect dose, an inappropriate change in drug therapy, potential drug interactions and contraindications due to patient allergies. However, an incorrect input by the computer operator can result in the failure of this important safety system. It’s critical that pharmacy staff members are fully aware of best practices in preventing these types of errors.  

Learn more in the Focus on Error Prevention - Drug Allergies article from Pharmacy Connection (Spring 2015). Please share this link/ article with all staff in your pharmacy.
