Steve Williams, Consultant Pharmacist in Medication Safety at UHSM, helped test our Medication Safety Thermometer in 2014.
Whilst the vast majority of what occurs in the NHS is done well and safely, up to 3 million doses of medication are given in an average hospital each year, so even if errors occur 0.1% of the time, we’re still talking huge numbers. The Thermometer is a quality improvement tool that allows organisations to reliably identify and focus on high-risk areas. Previously, we relied on voluntary reporting of medication safety incidents by health professionals, but we know that does not give us anywhere near the complete picture.
