Medication errors in children
Alsulami, Zayed Nama F. (2013) Medication errors in children. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Medication errors are a significant global concern and can cause serious medical consequences in children. Double checking of medicines by two nurses is one strategy used by many children's hospitals to prevent errors from reaching paediatric patients. This thesis involves different studies that evaluated the effectiveness of the double checking process in reducing and preventing medication administration errors in a children's hospital. In addition, a systematic review was conducted of medication errors studies in the Middle East.
