Reconciliation Prevents Administering The Wrong Medication Or Wrong Dosage
Medication reconciliation is a process that involves comparing a patient’s medication orders to all of the medications that the patient has been taking. Reconciliation is necessary for every transaction to avoid medication errors such as omissions, duplications, dosing errors, or drug interactions.
Clinical decisions are made based on detailed reviews and comparisons. New lists are provided to caregivers and the patients. Yet, pharmacists and medical providers often have breakdowns in communications.
Prescription medication must be prescribed with a thorough knowledge of the patient’s condition, other medications and allergies. Dosage must be accurate, specifically when it involves child doses versus adult doses. The drugs must be administered at the right time and continual monitoring of side effects is paramount.
