Medication Safety Team Size

Hello all,

We are working on a justification to grow our Medication Safety Team. We are being asked to collect information regarding number of Medication Safety Team members at other institutions.

How many team members are on your medication safety team?
How large is your hospital/system?
What is the makeup of your medication safety team (technicians, leadership roles, etc)?
If you are willing to share number of medication related safety events, please do!

**If anyone has previously compiled this information and is willing to share, please send along!**
