A pharmacist who lives in Somerset has tried to help hospital nurses give injections safer. They have done this by giving the people the help that they need in their profession. Doctor Matthew Jones has stated that the complicated nature of preparing the injections gives a lot of room for mistakes. In fact, over a third of injections were known for having mistakes. Around 35% of injections that were given in a hospital environment included at least one error and this is not appropriate at all.
Those who work in nursing jobs or even those who work in a recruitment agency will know that this is serious and that there certainly needs to be something done about this. Dr Jones comes from the University of Bath and they are interested to see if changing injections and even the guidance that is going to be given along with them will reduce the amount of errors that happen. Mistakes happen when bad advice is given and even when medicines are changed. If you want to try and improve the safety of the patient or if you want to try and save the NHS time then something needs to be done about this.
Mistakes can be caused by a huge range of things and it is a well-known fact that there is a lot of research that is going to be done to try and change this. This even includes the advice that experts give each other and even the way that the injections are given. Of course, only time will tell if anything can be done about this but at the end of the day it is incredible to see that so much is being done about this.
