High Alert Medications in Long Term Care

Presenter: Carrie Allen, PharmD, CGP

Certified Pharmacist Carrie Allen believes EVERYONE has a responsibility in preventing medication errors and ensuring the safety of all residents in long term care. High-alert medications are drugs that bear a heightened risk of causing significant patient harm when used in error. Although mistakes may or may not be more common with these drugs, the consequences of an error are clearly more devastating to patients.

Get the facts about high alert drugs, how to avoid costly medication errors, and ensure the safety of all patients in your care because of your good practice. 

This is a must watch for anyone working in long term care.
