Our topic for this morning is entitled ----- lets take note of the word safety off course the main reason why patient seek medical help is because they are experiencing something and the hospital serves as their resort to fell secure but how would they feel secure if people would know that like for example our hospital staff have committed some errors especially in medication. That would be a big question for the ---quality of service that we provide.1 Objective of the LectureTo update the Nursing Service staff on the current statistics of medication errors of KNH as a healthcare institution.To give a birds eye view on the global perspective of medication errors.To reorient the nursing staff on the policies and guideline of KNH on medication administration (CBAHI standards)To apply appropriate nursing action in recognizing adverse medication reaction and to apply preventive action to eliminate medication errorsBring up to date technology in medication administration system
