Medication process improves patient safety
“I can't think of anything we do that more clearly insures patient management decisions get forwarded to family, pharmacists, and family doctors than completing this form correctly. It's a big step forward in patient safety!” Dr. John Alport RPIW 83
Physicians and nurses on Unit 5E (Family Medicine) now use a standard provincial form to ensure changes and additions to a patient’s medications during
a hospital stay are communicated to the patient, family, and other health care providers upon discharge.
The form, to be rolled out region-wide, reduces confusion and improves safety for patients.
