Accurate data about medication errors are essential to prevention efforts. A multidisciplinary team at Bon Secours Hospital trialed an innovative method of reporting medication errors. It increased the number of reported medication errors six times compared with the same time period for the previous year on the pilot unit. It also saved time for the person reporting the error. The continuous quality improvement methodology was used to implement the new process.
