Leading the Way in Patient Safety

JANUARY FEATURE: Medication Safety

Calvert Memorial has added computerized systems - including
bar coding and order entry - to prevent errors caused by
poor handwriting. Additionally, CMH pharmacists are available
24/7 to provide clinical consults. As a result, the hospital ranks
second in medication safety statewide.

 What You Can Do

ü  Ask about your medication

ü  Double-check your prescriptions

ü  Discuss previous allergies or reactions

ü  Make a list of your medications and keep it with you
