Oncology nurses' beliefs and attitudes towards the double-check of chemotherapy medications: a cross-sectional survey study.
Schwappach DLB, Taxis K, Pfeiffer Y. BMC Health Serv Res. 2018;18:123.
Medication errors are common and particularly dangerous when they involve chemotherapy. Investigators surveyed Swiss oncology nurses about double-checking medications before administration, a widely practiced strategy. Most nurses endorsed double-checking as an effective safety tool, despite the fact that double-checking promotes workflow interruptions, is labor intensive, and is less effective than automated barcode scanning.
