This quality improvement intervention sought to decrease wrong-patient errors with insulin pens by storing them in locked boxes in patient rooms. Four hospital units had a formal policy change for insulin pen storage, and four units provided education to nurses about insulin pen storage. Researchers found that the policy change was more effective than education in spurring adherence to in-room insulin pen storage guidelines.
