Abstract: A poster presentation regarding drug administration systems in geriatric institutions. Introduction: In any hospital, a drug distribution system is needed in order to dispense the drugs to every patient. A measure of the quality of any drug distribution system is the incidence of medication errors. A system that limits risks of medication administration errors (MAEs) is desired. Direct observation studies are an effective and accurate way of detecting MAEs and examining their nature. Aim: To compare the current drug administration systems at a rehabilitation hospital (RHKG) and an elderly residence (SVPR) by identifying and measuring the incidence of medication administration errors.
