FRANCO DA SILVA, Eveline; DE FAVERI, Fabiano  and  LORENZINI, Lesiane. Medication error in the exercise of nursing: an integrative review. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.34, pp.330-337. ISSN 1695-6141.

This study is aimed at analyzing the national publications about medication error in the exercise of nursing. This is an integrative review, conducted by searching the databases BDEnf, SciELO and LILACS. Four topics emerged from the analysis: knowledge of the criteria that characterize the medication error, the error causes; punishment when an error occurs and continuing education as a tool to reduce medication errors. We found that the professional responsibility for the mistake is a culture that persists in Brazil.

Keywords : medication errors; nursing; safety management.
