Human factors affect medication delivery in the operating room. This review highlights the role of the anesthesiologist in safe medication administration and recommends strategies to reduce opportunities for error at each stage of medication administration, such as preoperative time-outs, preparation of medicines with color-coded syringe labels, patient identification prior to medication administration, and review of medications at handovers after administration.
