The Institute of Medicine estimates that, on average, a hospitalized patient is subject to 1 medication administration error/day. While that estimate is powerful on its own, it may be more significant for children.

In this presentation early results from an AHRQ-funded study on pediatric patient safety are presented. Specifically, data is provided on (a) predictors of medication administration violations and (b) the relationships among various measures of workload and outcomes such as nurse burnout and medication error likelihood. Implications for pediatric medication safety will be discussed.
