Los errores de medicación en anestesia, siguen siendo una causa grave de daño iatrogénico. Presentamos un estudio en el que se evalúa el potencial impacto de seguridad del uso de una bandeja con códigos de colores para la preparación y el almacenamiento de medicamentos anestésicos.

ABSTRACT

Improving patient safety: medication in the anaesthesia tray.

Medication errors in anesthesia remain a serious cause of iatrogenic damage. We present a study in which the potential safety impact of the use of a tray with color codes for the preparation and storage of anesthetic drugs is evaluated.
