management. This volume will address many safety issues inherent in managing the pharmacologic treatment of health conditions and diseases in correctional settings. Correctional health staff must take primary responsibility for managing every phase of the medication delivery process: Prescribing/Ordering, Transcribing/Verifying, Dispensing/Delivery, Administering, and Monitoring/Reporting. This is often done with little in the way of resources, equipment, or additional pharmacy expertise. Thus, those managing medications in correctional settings must be hyper-alert to the possibility of error and make every effort to improve patient safety by applying safety principles to this primary health care process. This book applies the four-part Correctional Health Care Patient Safety Model to assess common weaknesses in each part of the medication management process and suggest best practices based on the evidence. A final section of the book analyzes an actual correctional medication error through the various phases using the Patient Safety Model to identify root causes for intervention.
