This study found that medication reconciliation at hospital admission successfully reduced adverse drug events (ADEs) caused by incorrect admission medication changes. However, the investigators found that appropriate admission medication changes (e.g., withholding antihypertensive medication in a patient presenting with low blood pressure) were also associated with subsequent ADEs, indicating a need for better medication monitoring during hospitalization.
