    Using two patient identifiers is important in patient safety to ensure that there is a correct match between the patient and the medication. Another example of patient safety when doing a drug dosage would be to always double check your calculations, even if you have to ask another nurse you are working with, so that you can ensure you are giving the correct amount. Lastly, make sure to follow the 6 rights of medication administration to prevent medication errors, or harm to the patients.
