Follow the Mantra, "When in Doubt, Fill the Incident Report Out"
Pharmacists will be more encouraged to report medication incidents...in an effort to improve patient safety and outcomes.
Sometimes there's hesitation to report incidents...due to concerns about liability or disciplinary action or confusion about what to report.
But we're human...and we all make mistakes. We can't fix what we don't know. Reporting med incidents is a first step in preventing repeats.
