UTILIZATION OF TECHNOLOGY TO PREVENT MEDICATION ERRORS IN HEALTH CARE INSTITUTIONS

Year 2014, Volume 3, Issue 3, 183 - 188, 31.12.2014

Abstract


Medications are strong regulators of physiologic processes. Despite being significant effective decreasing mortality and morbidity when used optimally, medication errors are the most common causes of medical errors and irreversible complications may occur in patients. Medication usage is a multidisciplinary process which begins with the doctor's prescription, is followed provision of medication by pharmacist and ends with the preparation and administration of the medication to the patient by nurse. The problems that exist at any stage of this process are the reason of medical errors. In this review, the effects of health information technologies on the prevention of medication errors and improvement of the system will be examined.

SAĞLIK KURUMLARINDA İLAÇ HATALARININ ENGELLENMESİNDE

Year 2014, Volume 3, Issue 3, 183 - 188, 31.12.2014

Abstract


İlaçlar, fizyolojik süreçlerde güçlü ayarlayıcıdır. Optimum şartlarda kullanıldığında mortalite ve morbiditenin önemli oranda azaltılmasında etkili olmasına rağmen, ilaç hataları tıbbi hataların en yaygın nedenidir ve hastada geri dönüşü olmayan komplikasyonlar oluşabilir. İlaç kullanımı doktorun reçeteyi yazması ile başlayan, eczacı tarafından ilacın tedariki ile devam eden ve hemşire tarafından ilacın hazırlanması ve hastaya uygulanması ile son bulan multidisipliner bir süreçtir. Bu süreçlerin herhangi bir aşamasında yaşanan sorun, tıbbi hataların oluşmasının sebebidir. Bu derlemede, sağlık bilgi teknolojilerinin ilaç hatalarını engelleme ve sistemin iyileştirilmesi üzerine etkileri incelenecektir.
