As you can see from the screenshot (as usual, click on the picture for a bigger version) adding a medication error to a General Event Report (GER) is similar to creating a Medication Error Report in the existing Therap system.

You are however given a number of additional features.

  • You can choose the medications from the new Medication History module (more about that another day.
  • You can record how the medication was ordered and how it was given separately
  • You have the option to immediately identify the person responsible
  • You can attach a severity to the Medication Error (this is used by many agencies for disciplinary “points”)

Don’t forget to let me know your thoughts and suggestions.
