ABSTRACT

Therapeutic misadventure can be defined as an injury or an adverse event caused by medical management rather than by an underlying disease. Medication errors are a major part of this, being responsible for over 70% of cases that cause serious harm. However, many medication errors caused by slips, lapses, technical errors and mistakes are preventable; intentional violations of safe operating procedures are not.

KEYWORDS
