Medication Reconciliation Optimization: Cleaning up the wRECk

UC Davis Medical Center found that medication errors and discrepancies were widely prevalent at their institution. In line with studies from other institutions, up to 70% of patients have errors on their medication lists when admitted to the hospital. Their preliminary assessments were demonstrated with patients averaging over 5 discrepancies per admission. These discrepancies are carried downstream throughout hospitalization with impacts felt during transitions of care. The literature suggests that 0.9% of discrepancies lead to serious patient harm.
