I came across a near miss, but it was not in the context of my own employment. A relative of mine was recently discharged from hospital. On discharge she was given a script for her meds. However before discharge, the nursing staff or the doctor did not explain to her that there was some changes in the dosage to some of her existing meds, or that she was being prescribed some new meds. On going through the script, before I headed to get it dispensed, I noticed that there was a serious error in the dosage of one of the anti-hypertensive's meds that she was being prescribed. It must be said that the doctor didn't pick up on incorrect dosage subsequently, as it also appeared on the discharge letter, which was dictated one day post discharge. Thankfully, there was no harm done, but having said that, there was the real potential for harm. Through a bit of digging, I also found out that the doctor only graduated med school over a month ago. What would you do, would you report this near miss to the hospital?
