Promoting a culture of safety in healthcare organizations has become a necessary goal to ensure that patients are safe, well cared for, and satisfied with the services they receive. One of the areas recognized as a major safety concern across hospitals in the United States and abroad are medication errors, which continue to occur at a staggering rate. This integrative review seeks to serve two purposes to combat this pandemic problem. First, the project will attempt to determine if an appropriate intervention or strategic initiative exists that can reduce medications errors for adult patients on an acute care patient unit in an inpatient hospital setting. Second, will be to disseminate and implement the identified cluster of interventions at a healthcare organization in central Virginia, and follow the data trends to determine its effectiveness.
