Reminder after Reading a Story from Institute for Safe Medication Practices (“ISMP”)

One of the sources of information that we read regularly is published by the Institute of Safe Medication Practices. Recently, the ISMP wrote about individuals who were using a dosage cap from one over the counter medication, to measure medication from another medication.

When the measuring cups were swapped as described above, the result was that the individual taking the medication received an overdose of medication. Just as a reminder, Maryland medication error attorneys at Lebowitz & Mzhen, LLC recommend that measuring cups stay with the produce that they are designed to measure so that easily avoidable, but potentially dangerous, errors are avoided.
