Case Study: Health IT Event Report Leads to Safety Improvements
A hospital’s electronic medication administration record (eMAR) shortened the display for morphine orders by cutting off the information indicating whether the drug is delivered as an extended
-release formulation for long-term control of pain or as an immediate-release formulation for breakthrough pain. The organization had made the transition to eMAR from paper MARs, which clearly indicated the drug formulation ordered and administered.A cancer patient’s physician ordered extended-release morphine to be given to the patient every 12 hours to control cancer pain. The patient could also receive a smaller dose of the immediate-release formulation as
needed for breakthrough pain. In the eMAR, each order was displayed as “morphine”; the dosing information about the regularly scheduled and as-needed doses was cut off in the display.
When one patient complained of pain, the patient was mistakenly given both formulations of the drug at the same time, causing the patient to suffer a respiratory
arrest. An overdose of morphine, which is a high-alert medication, can cause serious patient h
arm. T he patient was successfully intubated and resuscitated. The event was reported to the organization’s event reporting program. After reviewing the event, the organization worked with its health IT developer to ensure that the eMAR display for “morphine” included information about the drug formulation. Additionally, the organization identified other same-drug-name displays that cut off information about the drug dose in the eMAR and requested that the developer correct the display to show the dosing information.
