Executive Summary: Clinical Practice Guideline
Medication errors (MEs) and adverse drug events (ADEs) are a common and significant concern in the ICU since they represent a leading cause of iatrogenic errors in the critically ill population. MEs occur more frequently and with a greater likelihood of harm in ICU patients compared with non-ICU patients. MEs can lead to ADEs associated with deleterious outcomes and enormous economic burden on the healthcare system.
