Isclosure of adverse medication events to the patient

As nurses a very routine daily part of care is the pouring and administration of medications while following the practice standard as outlined by the College of Nurses of Ontario, 41007_Medication.pdf .

Critical care nurses are working under extremely stressful conditions caring for unstable patients often combined with staffing and workload issues, all factors that can contribute to adverse medication events(errors). What we would like to explore in this discussion is your thoughts about disclosure of adverse medication events to the patient. You will also find ISMP Canada and The College of Nurses of Ontario valuable resources in your writing.
