Modi A, Germain E, Soma V, Munjal I, Rinke ML. Jt Comm J Qual Patient Saf. 2018;44:599-604.
Pediatric patients are at particularly high risk for medication errors.

The risk varied by medication class, and authors suggest developing quality improvement initiatives focused on the highest risk medications.
