Transcription errors during the prescribing phase due to little or poor communication between the nurse and prescriber are highest during order entry. These errors can lead to hospital readmissions. Typical errors can include the wrong medication, wrong route or dose, the wrong frequency, or incorrect administration documentation. They can also lead to more acute problems during admission, where one-third of rehospitalizations occur in the first three days, and half of those readmissions are attributable to medication errors.
Having technology in place to manage residents changing care needs will help reduce the risk for transcription errors while improving resident outcomes and time savings.
In this webinar we walk through a demonstration of PointClickCare’s complete medication management solution and show how it can help you to:
- Manage the risk related to medication management.
- Improve staff efficiency.
- Increase communication with your practitioners.
