Abstract

 Background &Aim: MEDICATION ERRORS are an old and most frequent problem in hospital wards. On the basis of the available studies MEDICATION ERRORS occur commonly among hospitalized patients. The purpose of this study is to determine the frequency, TYPE and CAUSES of MEDICATION ERRORS of NURSING STUDENTS in CARDIAC CARE UNITEs.Materials and Methods: This is a descriptive study in which 60 students were selected through censuses based on their self report. A questionnaire was used consisted of two sections: first demographic information and second, question about occurred MEDICATION ERRORS and on the verge MEDICATION ERRORS. After determining of validity and reliability, the questionnaire was completed by sample. Data was analyzed using descriptive statistics.Findings: Findings show that in 10% of sampling MEDICATION ERRORS had occurred and 41.66% were on verge of MEDICATION ERRORS. 48.34 % of samples did not report any error. The most prevalent TYPE of errors was incorrect drug calculation, paying no attention to the dose in drug card and poor pharmacologic knowledge. The most prevalent drug in which the error had occurred was heparin.Conclusion: Results showed that 10% of samples had medication error and 41.6% were on the verge of it.
