Abstract

The safe prescribing, use, administration, and monitoring of medications are an important component of patient safety efforts and are of particular importance to the obstetrician/gynecologist. Safe use of medications requires a team-based approach focused on medication safety with effective 2-way communication, use of technology to prevent and identify errors, diligent monitoring of the medication's effects on the patient, and use of standardized protocols to decrease the likelihood of a medication error.
