Medication discrepancies during hospital admission are common and can lead to preventable harm. This study examined the impact of having a pharmacist review medical charts of patients with complex medication regimens who were admitted to a general medical or emergency short-stay unit. The authors found that partnering medical staff with a pharmacist to review patients' admission medications in the chart significantly decreased inpatient medication errors.
