Parry AM, Barriball KL, While AE. Int J Nurs Stud. 2015;52:403-420.
The complexity of the care environment can hinder safe medication administration. This narrative review explores the evidence around nursing behaviors, individuals, and practice characteristics related tomedication errors. As the studies identified focused primarily on environmental factors and few discussed how behaviors may contribute to adverse drug events, the authors advocate for further research into the relationship between medication administration behavior, care settings, and individuals when investigating errors.
