THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THIS!!!

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/37386398/ns/health-more_health_news/   this is a good article from MSNBC..it is just the tip of the iceberg..doctors should print clearly..write the BRAND and GENERIC name of the RX including the use–HTN, DM etc..that is what i was taught 25 years ago..pharmacists need to be vigilant about names and odd doses..so far electronic prescibing has not helped much..perhaps pre-packaging drugs as is done in many countries will decrease errors…PRIMUM NON NOCERE
