Creating a distraction simulation for safe medication administration.

Thomas CM, McIntosh CE, Allen R. Clin Simul Nurs. 2014;10:406-411.

Nursing students and new registered nurses are more likely to make mistakes during medication administration due to lack of experience and insufficient knowledge. This commentary describes the development and implementation of a simulation program to help students experience the various interruptions and distractions that occur in the hospital environment while preparing medications to understand how they can contribute to errors and learn about risks associated with multitasking.
