Abstract

We examined propagation of medication errors at various stages of the medication management process (ordering, transcription, preparation, dispensing, administration and monitoring) in two ICUs of a medical center. We performed a secondary analysis of 1,732 medication events identified in a group of 630 ICU patients. A Markov Chain model showed that errors propagate throughout the medication management process, in particular between the stages of preparation, dispensing and administration.
