Why do prescription errors happen?
Doctors currently have no real time access to reliable pharmaceutical drug prescribing information so they rely on peers/mentors/ pharmaceutical representative but unfortunately that information is only as good as the source. Physicians try the Internet but there’s usually limited access in hospital/outpatient settings. There are printed pharmacopeias available but because of limited drug information which may not be current and which may be difficult to use during point of care, printed copies become unwieldy and unreliable.
