Pediatric patients are at increased risk of medication errors compared to adults, and this study sought to determine if a child's age is associated with risk of medication error. There was little association between age and prescribing errors for ages 0-3 years, then increasing until around age 10. Administration errors were steady for ages 0-8 years, and then increased with age until 18 years
