Mistakes during preparation of intravenous (IV) medications can lead to dosing errors and adverse drug events. Analyzing data collected over 12 months in a hospital's automated IV compounding workflow management system, this study found that IV compounding errors occurred in less than 1% of cases and were usually intercepted through the automated system. These results suggest that existing processes do support safe medication use.
