Lyons I, Furniss D, Blandford A, et al. BMJ quality & safety. 2018;27:892-901.

Errors and discrepancies in intravenous infusions were common in this study performed at two English hospitals, but only a small proportion of errors led to patient harm. The use of smart pumps did not appear to protect against errors.
