Abstract

In settings where patients are susceptible to adverse drug reactions, management of medication errors is acutely important. Efforts to reduce and prevent such events are, however, complicated by punitive medication management systems that make staff reluctant to report errors. By removing punitive medication error reporting systems, facility leaders can foster safer medication systems.
