The mission of the Medication Safety Officers Society (MSOS) is to advance and encourage excellence in safe medication use by providing communication, leadership, direction, and education among its members.
ISMP released its new 2016-2017 Targeted Medication Safety Best Practices for Hospitals. There are 5 new best practices related to neuromuscular blockers, smart pumps, antidotes/reversal agents, sterile water bags and sterile compounding (BP 7-11). In addition, two of the 2014-2015 best practices related to oral methotrexate (BP 2) and metric weights (BP 3) have been revised for 2016-2017 based on feedback over the past two years.
