Reporting Medication Errors Supports Quality Improvement
The USP Medication Errors Reporting Program operated in conjunction with ISMP provides health professionals who encounter actual or potential medication errors the opportunity to report confidentially to USP. These reports contribute to improved patient safety and to educational services aimed at preventing future errors. By sharing your experience, you help your colleagues gain an understanding of why medication errors occur and how to prevent them. To reach a USP health care professional who will take your report and respond to your concerns, call 1-800-233-7767 (1-800-23-ERROR).
Report forms are available in hard copy or on diskette free of charge. Call 1-800-487-7776 (1-800-USP-PRN) to place your order.
