Although medication errors are a common source of preventable harm across health care settings, hospitalized children are at especially increased risk. This study evaluated a pediatric hospital's barcode-assisted medication preparation technology for dispensing oral liquid medications. The technology enhanced safety, averting more than 3000 medication errors over a one-year period.
