The Assess-ERR™ Medication System Worksheets are designed to help you with error report investigations. Use the worksheets to collect critical information after a medication error or near-miss occurs.

Using Assess-ERR™ can help you convert a negative error experience into a positive learning experience that enhances safety. The worksheets aid in developing a standardized approach to documenting error incidents and helps to reveal the underlying system deficiencies that contributed to the error. Additionally, the tool can help raise awareness of issues that have become so familiar to healthcare practitioners in a particular practice setting that the issues are no longer even recognized as risks.

Healthcare organizations are encouraged to employ this tool to help identify, prioritize, and record problems in your organization’s medication use system.
