A medication error is "any error occurring in the medication use process." (Bates DW, Boyle DL, Vander Vliet MB, Schneider J, Leape L. 1995. Relationship between medication errors and adverse drug events. Journal of General Internal Medicine 10(4): 100–205.) The National Coordinating Council for Medication Error and Prevention has approved the following as its working definition of medication error: "... any preventable event that may cause or lead to inappropriate medication use or patient harm, while the medication is in the control of the health care professional, patient, or consumer. Such events may be related to professional practice, health care products, procedures, and systems including: prescribing; order communication; product labeling, packaging and nomenclature; compounding; dispensing; distribution; administration; education; monitoring; and use."

Drug names that can be confused, especially those names that look or sound alike, can increase the risk for medication errors. Errors involving these problematic name pairs may occur when a prescriber interchanges the two medications when writing an order, when someone misinterprets a written order, when a person taking a verbal order does not hear the order as intended, when selecting a medication when entering an order into a computer system or when obtaining medications from storage. A common contributor to these types of name mix-ups is what human-factors experts call confirmation bias (see FAQ #9). ISMP's List of Confused Drug Names, which includes look-alike and sound-alike name pairs that have been involved in medication errors published in the ISMP Medication Safety Alert! ®. Errors involving these medications were reported to ISMP through the ISMP Medication Errors Reporting Program (MERP). The Joint Commission (TJC) has established a National Patient Safety Goal that requires each accredited organization identify and, at a minimum, annually review a list of look-alike/sound-alike drugs used in the organization, and take action to prevent errors involving the interchange of these drugs (NPSG.03.03.01). An organization's list of look-alike/sound-alike drugs must contain a minimum of 10 drug combinations. You can find TJC's list of drug names at TJC's website. Note: Names that appear on TJC's list of look-alike or sound-alike names have been noted in with a double asterisk (**) on ISMP's List of Confused Drug Names.

Medication use is a complex process that comprises the sub-processes of medication prescribing, order processing, dispensing, administration, and effects monitoring. The key elements that affect the medication-use process are listed below. The interrelationships among these key elements form the structure within which medications are used. I. Patient information: Obtaining the patient's pertinent demographic (age, weight) and clinical (allergies, lab results) information that will assist practitioners in selecting the appropriate medications, doses and routes of administration. Having essential patient information at the time of medication prescribing, dispensing and administration will result in a significant decrease in preventable adverse drug events (ADEs). II. Drug information: Providing accurate and usable drug information to all healthcare practitioners involved in the medication-use process reduces the amount of preventable ADEs. Not only should drug information be readily accessible to the staff through a multitude of sources (drug references, formulary, protocols, dosing scales…), it is imperative that the drug information is up to date as well as accurate. III. Communication of drug information: Miscommunication between physicians, pharmacists and nurses is a common cause of medication errors. To minimize the amount of medication errors caused by miscommunication it is always important to verify drug information and eliminate communication barriers. IV. Drug labeling, packaging and nomenclature: Drug names that look-alike or sound-alike, as well as products that have confusing drug labeling and non-distinct drug packaging significantly contribute to medication errors. The incidence of medication errors is reduced with the use of proper labeling and the use of unit dose systems within hospitals. V. Drug storage, stock, standardization, and distribution: Standardizing drug administration times, drug concentrations, and limiting the dose concentration of drugs available in patient care areas will reduce the risk of medication errors or minimize their consequences should an error occur. VI. Drug device acquisition, use and monitoring: Appropriate safety assessment of drug delivery devices should be made both prior to their purchase and during their use. Also, a system of independent double-checks should be used within the institution to prevent device related errors such as, selecting the wrong drug or drug concentration, setting the rate improperly, or mixing the infusion line up with another. VII. Environmental factors: Having a well-designed system offers the best chance of preventing errors; however, sometimes the environment in which we work contributes to medication errors. Environmental factors that often contribute to medications errors include poor lighting, noise, interruptions and a significant workload. VIII. Staff competency and education: Staff education should focus on priority topics, such as: new medications being used in the hospital, high- alert medications, medication errors that have occurred both internally and externally, protocols, policies and procedures related to medication use. Staff education can be an important error preventions strategy when combined with the other key elements for medication safety. IX. Patient education: Patients must receive ongoing education from physicians, pharmacists and the nursing staff about the brand and generic names of medications they are receiving, their indications, usual and actual doses, expected and possible adverse effects, drug or food interactions, and how to protect themselves from errors. Patients can play a vital role in preventing medication errors when they have been encouraged to ask questions and seek answers about their medications before drugs are dispensed at a pharmacy or administered in a hospital. X. Quality processes and risk management: The way to prevent errors is to redesign the systems and processes that lead to errors rather than focus on correcting the individuals who make errors. Effective strategies for reducing errors include making it difficult for staff to make an error and promoting the detection and correction of errors before they reach a patient and cause harm.
