||Studies have shown that adverse events related to medication errors occur frequently in hospitalized patients and are three times more common in pediatric patients than in adults. The goal of this QI project is reduce the rates of reported adverse drug events that do not cause patient harm by at least 20% and, for pediatric patients, to ensure that the rate of reported ADE events that cause patient harm is lower the Solutions for Patient Safety (SPS) Network benchmark.
