The relationship between nursing experience and education and the occurrence of reported pediatric medication administration errors.

Sears K, O'Brien-Pallas L, Stevens B, et al. Journal of pediatric nursing. 2016;31:e283-90.

This Canadian study found that nurses with more experience reported a greater number of pediatric medication administration errors, but these errors were less severe compared to other units. This finding suggests widespread underreporting of medication errors by nurses with a lower level of experience.
