Nurses are responsible for several steps in the medication-use process, including preparation, administration, and monitoring of most medications. This study queried nurses working at a 10-hospital system in the southeastern United States about their attitudes, beliefs, and skills surrounding medication safety and error reporting. Survey responses indicate that nurses felt comfortable completing an incident report regarding an error and disclosing the error to another health care provider. There was some ambiguity around rating the severity of hypothetical errors.
