Incidence of Adverse Drug Events and Potential Adverse Drug Events: Implications for Prevention
TLDR
Adverse drug events were common and often preventable; serious ADEs were more likely to be preventable and prevention strategies should target both stages of the drug delivery process. Expand
The costs of adverse drug events in hospitalized patients
TLDR
The substantial costs of ADEs to hospitals justify investment in efforts to prevent these events, and estimates of annual costs attributable to all ADEs and preventable ADEs for a 700-bed teaching hospital are $5.6 million and $2.8 million are conservative because they do not include the costs of injuries to patients or malpractice costs. Expand
Pharmacist participation on physician rounds and adverse drug events in the intensive care unit.
TLDR
The presence of a pharmacist on rounds as a full member of the patient care team in a medical ICU was associated with a substantially lower rate of ADEs caused by prescribing errors. Expand
Effect of computerized physician order entry and a team intervention on prevention of serious medication errors.
TLDR
Physician computer order entry decreased the rate of nonintercepted serious medication errors by more than half, although this decrease was larger for potential ADEs than for errors that actually resulted in an ADE. Expand
Systems analysis of adverse drug events. ADE Prevention Study Group.
TLDR
Hospital personnel willingly participated in the detection and investigation of drug use errors and were able to identify underlying systems failures that underlie errors causing adverse drug events and potential ADEs. Expand
Preventable adverse drug events in hospitalized patients: a comparative study of intensive care and general care units.
TLDR
The rate of preventable and potential adverse drug events was twice as high in ICUs compared with non-ICUs, but there were no differences between medical ICU and surgical ICU patients. Expand
Therapeutic Intervention Scoring System: Update 1983
TLDR
In response to requests to update the TISS system, some items have been deleted, some have been added, and certain point scores have been adjusted, in order to ease the task of assessing use of intensive care services. Expand
The incident reporting system does not detect adverse drug events: a problem for quality improvement.
TLDR
The frequency with which adverse drug events result in an incident report (IR) in hospitalized patients was determined to determine and if there were differences between quality assurance administrators, nurse leaders in quality assurance, and staff nurses as to whetheran incident report should or would be filed for each adverse drug event.
