Analyzing data from the AHRQ Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project, this study found that hospitalizations related to adverse drug events increased from 2008 to 2011. These hospitalizations are common and costly, and they demonstrate higher odds of in-hospital death. These data underscore the urgent need to enhance medication safety.
