Patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection require increasingly complex drug regimens for treatment. This study found that more than one-third of patients with HIV who were admitted to the hospital experienced a medication error, most often omission of an antiretroviral medication. More than half of these errors were never corrected during the hospitalization.
