This retrospective study examined possible transcription errors for blood glucose values among patients in a surgical intensive care unit for which glucometers did not connect with the electronic health record. Investigators identified multiple insulin dosing errors as a result of transcription errors. They spotlight the need for interoperability between glucometers and electronic health records.
