PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center
Measure: Correctly label all medications and solutions, including containers (syringes, medicine cups, basins, etc.), on and off the sterile field.

Time Period Ending:  3/31/2013

What We Are Doing:

St. Joe's Medication Administration policy requires labeling of all medications not immediately given to the patient at the time they are drawn. Any medications that are removed from their original containers and are to be used in the future are labeled correctly to ensure that the medication you are given is exactly what was ordered. We perform monthly audits to assure that this process is followed every time.
