David Westfall Bates, MD, Senior Vice President for Quality and Safety at Brigham and Women's Hospital, describes practices that reduce the frequency of medication dispensing errors in hospitalized patients including computerized physician order entry, medication bar coding and electronic medication administration records as well as new technologies that will further improve patient safety.
Brigham and Women's Hospital is committed to honoring the five "rights" of safe medication administration -- right patient, right drug, right dose, right time and right route (e.g., pill, IV). This commitment, combined with its leadership in the development and adoption of new prescribing and medication administration technologies, has led to significant decreases in medication errors.
