This study discovered that medication administration at nursing homes is an error-prone process, particularly around administration techniques and wrong time errors. A past AHRQ WebM&M commentary discussed a case of a nurse who bypassed the safeguards of an automated dispensing system at a nursing facility, which led to a serious medication error.
