Most frequent cause of drug-related problems: inappropriate dosing
According to a recently published study, inappropriate dosing in neonates is the most frequent cause of drug-related problems. Even though the neonatal intensive care unit had dosing guidelines for all drugs. This was also the case in our study on prescribing errors at the University Children's Hospital Zurich a few years ago. In the meantime, however, the University Children's Hospital Zurich is relying on a sophisticated "clinical decision support tool" to reduce medication errors.
