A demonstration program at UCSF today reported a 56.8% reduction in medication administration errors – increasing the administration accuracy rate at participating hospitals to 93%. These gains were achieved through adherence to a set of six “best practice” procedures for medication administration identified by CalNOC (the California Nursing Outcomes Coalition). The study also reported a reduction in procedural errors of 78.5% – increasing adherence to these “best practice” procedures to 95.6% after 18 months. This study is the first to directly validate a specific set “best practices” for medication administration.
