Prevalence of Medication Errors across the world.

Author: UPLOADED BY-ADMIN, A. KUMAR, R. KACHHADIYA, R. BHATIA
Abstract: Medically inappropriate, ineffective and economically inefficient use of pharmaceuticals is commonly observed in the health care system throughout the world, especially in the developing countries. The medication error is not only clinically significant in many occasions; it has serious economic consequences like extended hospital stays, additional treatment, and malpractice litigation. It is suggested by some researcher that out of the total errors, 39% of errors are occurred at prescribing stage, 12% at transcribing stage, and 13% at compounding stage and about 38% at administering stage. A number of Healthcare agencies and Associations have come forwards to counteract against this unnecessary problem. The main roadblock to these organizations’ step forward is unavailability of quality data on prevalence of medication errors and Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR). Most of the studies done in past two decades, those which have estimated the extent and consequences of medical errors in health care provision, are either from US or other developed countries. This create more unsatisfactory situation as one found the most successful rated healthcare systems of world unsafe. This review article has tried to provide the adequate and important information about medication errors and Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR) prevailing throughout the world. The US report ‘To Err is Human’ refers to these studies but also highlights that although they were undertaken over a decade ago, little responsive action has been taken by health care providers. As a result, improving patient safety in health care provision has become a priority in recent years.
