Medication errors is a virtual encylcopedia on medication errors. This text provides a strong theoretical
background and numerous practical tips for reducing medication errors. The book expands the definition of
medication errors beyond the well-known "five rights" of medication administration. Medication errors
also include a failure to detect drug interactions, too rapid rates of administration, and poor patient
adherence to treatment instructions. I highly suggest this book for pharmacists, physicians, nurses,
hospital administrators, risk managers, and pharmacy technicians.
