Medication errors are the largest class of medical errors in healthcare today and the most common cause of unnecessary readmissions. CMS said that drug-related adverse outcomes occur in 1.9 million inpatient stays, almost 5% of all admissions. Hospitals that spend more resources on medication issues generally demonstrate lower rates of adverse events.
