Medication Safety

The Institute of Healthcare Improvement (IHI) defines medication reconciliation as a process of identifying the most accurate list of all medications a patient is taking-including name, dosage, frequency, and route and using the list to provide correct medications for patients anywhere within the health care system. For patients admitted to a hospital, this process involves comparing the patient’s current list of medications against the physician’s admission, transfer, and/or discharge order.

In addition to the resources below, there are medication safety-related resources in the For Patients & Families section.
