The Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) recently published a report that highlighted the fact that poorly implemented ePMA (electronic prescribing and medicines administration) systems can result in potentially fatal medication errors.
The report comes after HSIB looked at the case of 75-year old Ann Midson, who was left taking two powerful blood-thinning medications after a mix-up at her local hospital where she was receiving treatment whilst suffering from incurable cancer.
PRAC+TICE caught up with Scott Hislop and Helen Jones, two of the investigators, on this podcast to discuss the series of events that ultimately culminated in the sad passing of Mrs Ann Midson.
