    Patient safety is one of the top priorities when it comes to medication administration. You must always be aware of your patient’s medication list, known allergies, likes and dislikes. This is why it is important that you double or even triple check your patients MAR with the doctor’s order along with each medication you pull to distribute. For each medication you pull you need to make sure you have the right drug, the right dose, the right route, the right patient, the right time, along with the right documentation. Always document whether the med was given, reason if refused, unavailable, as well as document any adverse reactions that may occur.
