Hayes C, Jackson D, Davidson PM, et al. Journal of clinical nursing. 2015;24:3063-76.

This systematic review found clear consensus that disruptions worsen the safety of medication administration by nursing, and interventions to reduce such interruptions can improve safety. Investigators identified effective management of unavoidable interruptions as a gap in current research and training for nurses.
