Frustrated Male Nurse Alt CE Logo

Anyone can learn with PNCB’s new bite-sized Journal Club CE—article included!

It’s been a hectic 12-hour shift, but the child in Room 316 is all set after her nausea meds have been administered. Later, a colleague asks about a problem with the drug calculation, and panic sets in when it is realized that there has been a medication error. What are the appropriate steps to take now to disclose effectively and transparently? Learn from an article about the Children’s Hospitals’ Solutions for Patient Safety (SPS) disclosure training program to guide your actions in the event of a medication error.

Module Objectives:
  1. List appropriate actions after a medication error occurs.
  2. Discuss influences on prevailing professional and societal attitudes surrounding error disclosure.
