Monitoring Your Medicines in the Hospital

Medication errors aren't unusual in the hospital. As an active patient, you can keep careful track of the medicines you're getting and help prevent mistakes. If you are allergic to a drug, check your wrist band. It should include all drug allergies. When a nurse comes in to give you medicine, he or she may ask you to repeat your full name. If the nurse doesn't ask, say your full name anyway to be safe.
