Medication error rate KPI

Dear Colleagues,

Hope you are doing great
As you all know, every healthcare organization has it's own KPI ( key performance indicator ) for medication error rate followup which aim to control medication errors among the hospital and help to prevent recurrence of incidents, my inquiries about if you have formula or equation to determine the internal target of medication error rate that you will achieve it quarterly or monthly ( regarding the international target is it 2% - 14% ). Any participation will be highly appreciable. Thanks
