Description

Nurses play a significant role facilitating safe patient transitions between care settings.  Care transitions represent points where medication errors can occur due to lapses in communication or errors in medication documentation transcription.  Medication mistakes are a common complication for patients being discharged from one setting to another and accreditation standards related to medication reconciliation provide a framework to improve medication safety.  Nursing awareness of high alert medications during care transitions can help ensure medication errors do not occur.
