Medication Errors comment from June 6, 2007 posting


Unless my patient is unconscious or not able to understand due to age or illness, I can’t imagine not giving some type of brief explanation or at the very least, “Hi Mr. Smith, how are you feeling? It’s 10am and time for your Lasix” and not saying “here, take this”. Communication by the whole health care team is so integral to positive patient outcomes – have we become so task oriented that common courtesy and just plain politeness doesn’t matter? I sure hope not.
