Interventions to reduce medication errors in pediatric intensive care.

Manias E, Kinney S, Cranswick N, et al. The Annals of pharmacotherapy. 2014;48:1313-31.

Children in pediatric intensive care units (ICUs) are particularly vulnerable to medication errors. This systematic review sought to identify strategies for reducing errors in pediatric ICUs, but found that the published evidence was rather limited in quality and scope. Some of the most promising interventions thus far include smart pumps and computerized provider order entry with decision support.
