This survey study found that most pediatric hospitalist programs use computerized provider order entry with weight-based medication dosing, review medication safety events and near misses, require weight-based prescribing, and have maximum doses in place. Larger hospitals are more likely to have a pediatric pharmacist. Variation in medication safety practices suggests that best practices remain incompletely implemented.
