Medication Errors

One of the topics covered in Unit II is how and why medication errors occur and the best prevention methods. In this Article Critique, you will investigate this issue further.

Using the CSU Online Library, research and critique an article that covers an instance of a medication error. Your article should be recent (within the last five years,) and your critique should include the following:

 An introduction

 A summary of the article’s main points

 The reason for the error

 Consequences of the error

 A paragraph of how you can learn from this article

Your assignment must be in APA format and approximately two pages in length (not including the title and reference page.) Be sure to cite all paraphrase and quotations appropriately.
