ISMP is beginning the process of developing the new 2018-2019 Targeted Medication Safety Best Practices for Hospitals. We would like ideas from you for either issues that need a best practice, or the best practice itself. Remember the criteria is that these are issues that have cause serious harm or death over many years, and can be addressed by one or two best practices in most cases. Please send me an email at Thanks for your input.
