The study indicates that 39% of medication errors are from doctor's prescriptions. Almost 70% of them, however, are intercepted, discovered, and stopped before happening by pharmacists and nurses before the medication taken. 38% of medication errors also happens when nurses dispensing the medication. But this kind of errors do not have similar safety nets to intercept and stop them from happening. This study also suggests that the medication errors are introduced from insufficient protection of procedures. It usually happens when correct procedures are not followed. In fact, carrying out the verification of the patient's personal information can reduce the possibility of unclear medical advices and errors from nurses.
