Anesthesia patients are continuously at risk for intraoperatively and perioperatively medication errors. While measures are being taken to improve medication safety, this area has been slow to change and advancements have been inconsistent.
During the APSF Stoelting Conference, David Jamison, executive director of the health devices group at ECRI Institute, will lead a session titled Intravenous Medication Administration: Potential for Harm. In this session, Jamison will discuss ways to reduce medication and administration errors. This session will specifically focus on the operating room environment and the anesthesia clinician.
