Larsen GY, Parker HB, Cash J, O'Connell M, Grant MC. Pediatrics. 2005;116:e21-25.
This study evaluated the impact of three independent medication safety interventions on the incidence of reported infusion errors. Investigators collected data before and after the interventions and discovered a 73% reduction in reported errors. The authors conclude that implementation of new technology in conjunction with simple system changes provides opportunities to improve the safety of care in an increasingly complex health care environment.
