The other drug problem in schools; school nurses report medication errors. (2001). American Journal of Nursing, 101, 20.
This piece of literature reported on a study examining medication administration practices of school nurses. Medication errors emerged as a rising concern, with missed doses being the number one type of error. Almost half of the school nurses reported medication errors in their schools during the past year. Use of unlicensed assistive personnel was estimated to be a factor, with errors 3.1 times more likely to occur when unlicensed assistive personnel were used.
