Medication Safety Recommendations Endorsed by THA Board of Directors

THA hosted a statewide Medication Safety Summit on September 17 with 43 facilities and/or hospital systems represented. Based on the suggestions offered, the THA Board of Directors voted to endorse the following recommendations to foster medication safety in Tennessee:

  • All hospitals should have a multidisciplinary medication safety team in place.
  • All hospitals should report on the non-mandatory ADE measures identified by the Tennessee Pharmacists Coalition and reported through the Tennessee Center for Patient Safety at the Tennessee Hospital Association.

For information related to the medication safety endorsements or the work of the Tennessee Pharmacists Coalition, contact Jackie Moreland at jmoreland@tha.com.
