Targeted Medication Safety Best Practices for Hospitals

The purpose of the Targeted Medication Safety Best Practices for Hospitals is to identify, inspire, and mobilize widespread, national adoption of consensus-based best practices for specific medication safety issues that continue to cause fatal and harmful errors in patients, despite repeated warnings in ISMP publications. Hospitals can focus their medication safety efforts over the next 2 years on these best practices, which are realistic and have been successfully adopted by numerous organizations. While targeted for the hospital-based setting, some best practices may be applicable to other healthcare settings. The Targeted Medication Safety Best Practices for Hospitals have been reviewed by an external expert advisory panel and approved by the ISMP Board of Trustees. Related issues of the ISMP Medication Safety Alert! are referenced after each best practice.
