Case Studies in Medication Error Prevention


Caring for patients is challenging and fulfilling, but often stressful and harried as well. Frequent interruptions and constantly changing patient needs can lead to error. Since nurses do most of the actual medication administration in a facility, they provide the last opportunity to prevent a medication error. This program presents 12 scenarios that result in medication errors, then discusses how they could have been avoided. The goal is to help the viewer identify ways errors can creep into nursing practices and develop strategies that can be used to prevent them.


After viewing this program the nurse should be able to:

  • List the "6 Rights of Medication administration"
  • Describe methods for preventing medication errors

This program also includes workbooks that can be ordered separately.
