Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) often make dosing errors when administering medication to pediatric patients. This study found that in simulations, Michigan's state-wide pediatric dosing reference system reduced but did not eliminate prehospital provider medication mistakes. A PSNet perspective further explores prehospital patient safety.
