Measures (Indicators) to Support the Issue
In order to control medication errors and cope with this undesirable phenomenon in the field of healthcare successfully, it is essential to know the indicators of the problem. One of them is the time that the nursing staff spends on medication administration. According to Hayes, Jackson, Davidson, and Power (2015) who conduct their research devoted to identifying mistakes prevalence, “in addition to reported errors, between one and two errors per patient per day remain unreported” (p. 3064). These statistics indicate the insufficiently effective organization of control over the prescription of appropriate drugs and staff qualifications. Consequently, to improve patient outcomes, additional training in medical settings is required to support the resolution of the issue in question.
